Lord of the Flies Media Design
The desktop provides a first-person view of a contemporary analogy for the island - a place where children exist outside of parental supervision. It is a place where there is a notion of a system, but whose lawlessness is eventually laid bare. It is a place where one feels connected, when in fact they are alone. As the familiar political systems the characters try to rely on fail, so does the familiar aesthetic of the computer desktop, which is deconstructed and dissolved into an uncanny, disorienting, and threatening space.
