The category I choose for "The Need for Art" was to refresh our vision and see the world in a new way. I chose this piece of street art for several reasons. Because the artist is in this case anonymous, it leaves the focus on the very clear message being sent. By taking a seemingly harmless "addiction" that so many people have to Facebook and placing it alongside the very real addiction many have to cigarettes, the artist makes the audience question their activity and thus see our habits in a new light.
