Like it or not, social media is a pretty unavoidable part of life now.

View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @ben_fearnley The result: these stunning 3D illustrations of "sculptures" that represent the major social media brands. Ben Fearnley / Via benfearnleydesign.com Fearnley used CGI to make these images, placing each piece on a pedestal and adding lighting and texture to create a "gallery vibe." Fearnley created these illustrations with the specific traits of each platform in mind. For example, Facebook has a bit of a voyeuristic connotation to it. Ben Fearnley / Via benfearnleydesign.com "You log onto Facebook and it's basically like watching people's lives through the content they post," Fearnley told BuzzFeed. "You find out someone has moved to a new city or got engaged before you even see them in person, hence the Facebook branded viewing scope to visually represent this idea of 'watching.'" Then there's Twitter, which is a giant megaphone...and yes, those are hashtags pouring out the bottom. Ben Fearnley / Via benfearnleydesign.com "The megaphone for this object represent[s] people trying to be heard, but the thousands of Twitter hashtags falling out of this like verbal vomit," Fearnley explained. Snapchat is especially tongue-in-cheek: The shredder concept obviously represents how Snaps disappear... Ben Fearnley / Via benfearnleydesign.com ...But the note on the side makes a statement about the kind of content you get on Snapchat, 99% of the time.

Ben Fearnley / Via benfearnleydesign.com Fearnley notes that he uses social media plenty himself, so this project isn't meant to denigrate the platforms or people who use them. Ben Fearnley / Via benfearnleydesign.com "Personally I don't dislike any of the social media platforms, the project isn't meant to be having a stab at any of these companies," he told BuzzFeed. "It's just seeing them in a different way that I find interesting and amusing." You can check out more of Ben's colorful work on his Instagram.
