David was a young man that clashed and defeated a mighty philistine soldier, big as a giant, only with his slingshot, becoming the new king of the Jewish people. David successfully beat the soldier Goliath with an ostensibly lower weapon. The astonishing Michelangelo’s sculpture inspired me to ponder on how youth nowadays are challenging the established power with the new technologies. Changing the slingshot that the statue of David hold on his left hand for an iPhone, icon of the new technologies, I want to focus on how that new “weapon” start changing the old-world inertia of our society.
