TECH

 

Life has got remarkably connected and disconnected via technology and I think Art is becoming more important than ever for its human touch and authenticity... Even its currency. How has technology affected life for you?

“I believe I mostly despise it. Hardly ever do I use a computer for anything tangibly useful. Pardon me, actually I do like how easy it is to research things of natural wellness or find homeopathic answers to dealing with myself. That or I can compare prices on books quite easily and rarely overspend on something I’m searching for when I’ve found it. I appreciate how I can quickly keep in touch with someone I’m working with or at it deep building on something with. Though socially, perhaps especially since I’ve purposefully distanced myself from society as best I could by nestling myself in a rural natural setting, I find it’s really isolating, and confining. Like we increasingly are in our own little pods and know one another and communicate largely thru texts and blips on hand held plastic, metal, glass electro magnetic transistor communication devices. And then as far away as you may go you’re never really out of touch, and someone can always trace what you’ve looked at or your last steps or finger swipes on its platform. I think it creates a false world where superficiality takes a certain precedence.”
