Artist Saint Hoax created a collection of tech-addicted Disney princess images that address generation Y's similar obsession. The images specifically focus on how society's desire for technology has affected human relationships.

This tech-addicted Disney series title 'Contemporary Fairy Tale' uses iconic characters to show that even when people spend time together, they can be completely removed from situations. For example, there is an illustration of Ariel and Prince Eric having dinner together but instead of looking at each other, they are gazing at their smartphone screens.

While the images present an initially humorous tone, the deeper message hints towards society's lack of physical and emotional awareness. Modern relationships have incorporated the use of technology into almost every activity, which seems to defeat the purpose of traditional dates or romantic endeavors.
