It’s very interesting how we live in an era where we’re all self-proclaimed documentarians. We walk around with our faces fixated on a screen while trying to maneuver cinematically in a way that makes every day life become interesting to an audience of individuals we’ve never met. I would say majority of the world has a vlog (video log for those whom are still living in the analog stratosphere) where they see their reality through pixels rather than the actual retina they where born with. I could go on forever about how this is breeding a society of individuals who simply like to see themselves existing in a world of “thumbs ups” and “subscribers” and “likes” rather than actually living in the first-person spectrum. As much harm as this has done I can’t neglect the opposite side of this media induced narcissistic tsunami that captures moving images like a visual scrapbook of peoples lives that will live on long after they’re gone. Just like every self-induced evil of the world, there is a antidote that does bring comfort to the human soul, such as those who share their outlook in a way that impacts people or adds value to their lives. Nevertheless, we felt the need to voice these views, whether good or bad, in a way that demands thought. Let’s be honest, how many times have you been out to dinner and the whole table is looking at their phones rather than each other? How many times have you wanted to share a special moment with someone you love but you’re interrupted by the arm in the sky and red blinking light? Our whole point is, put down the device momentarily and spend time in a physical social setting where you can truly feel the human experience.
