The Rayograph

Technol-oh-gee

Oh, technology. The thrill of having your snarky comment or silly picture ‘liked’ on Facebook; the ease with which you and your loved ones on the other side of the world can connect via Skype; the frustration when your laptop freezes while you are working on a post for your blog – you know how it is.

Anyway, this made me chuckle.

Over at Flavorwire, Judy Berman writes:
Fashionistas. Orthodox Jews. Hipsters. Middle-aged guys playing chess in the park. Dudes at the beach. Art-museum patrons. Food-cart vendors. Young women commuting in the rain. Grown-ass men with bubble guns. In a new photo series by Joseph O. Holmes … these characters all have one thing in common: they’re texting. Each of the images that comprises Texters spotlights a person, usually in the midst of a beautiful, engaging urban setting, engrossed in typing on his or her cell phone. By sharpening his focus around the texter and letting the background go blurry, Holmes manages to underscore the way these devices can isolate us without coming across as harshly polemical.

    This made me actually laugh out loud!

    What a social commentary this is. It is almost like one of those sci-fi flicks where everyone is addicted to a game, perhaps that the government or some big cooperation has leaked out into the hapless populace in a bid to control their minds. Wait a minute…it’s exactly like that!

    I wonder…who can I text about this?
