Technology — will it save humanity or destroy it? It’s a million-dollar question and one that will remain significant for the foreseeable future. Since the “birthday of the internet” in January 1983, technology has made colossal strides, best characterised by the rapid — albeit unnerving — creation of artificial intelligence (AI). Unsurprisingly, as technology becomes successively more sophisticated, we as a society are spending more of our waking hours online. In fact, at the time of writing, there are 4.88 billion users in the world today. From New Zealand to New York, a cacophony of pings, swipes and clicks in every corner of the globe.
Whether in war-torn Ukraine, Laos or Spain, a lot can be learnt from the art created by kids living in war-torn regions across place and time.
