Join the Collective

Description

From our early childhood, we all are integrated into the social fold, where we are taught or pressured to act and think alike. Through this mental programming, society tries to maintain its veneer of social order. As a result, we subconsciously act the same, think the same, and strive for the same things, all without questioning their purpose or reason. “Join the Collective” depicts how we succumb to the expectations and stereotypes imposed by society, as if by a collective mind, even though we are still separate individuals.
