Pathological Technological World

Have you ever been out in public and you look around only to see people on their phones? It’s a sad scene when you really think about it, if you’re out at a restaurant and you see a family having dinner but all of them on their phones, or maybe a child watching their favorite show while the adults converse. Truth is we’ve become a society dependent on technology.

The hopes of this project is to show just how technology causes a division between people, relationships, and real life moments.

It’s easy to fall into the rabbit hole of social media and get caught up in what everyone else is doing, but I believe we often miss out on things happening around us that are equally as interesting if not more interesting and spontaneous. It’s a distraction to the things going on around you, the conversations you might miss because you have your headphones on or you were glued to the phone.

I’m not saying we should abandon our cell phones and laptops, etc. I’m saying look up once in a while, take a break, talk to your kid or your spouse or whoever is with you at the dinner table. Brace yourself for awkward silences remember, it’s only awkward if you make it awkward. Just don’t forget to be in the present moment, you might miss something you wish you hadn’t.
