Whilst walking home yesterday my battery died (despite having 35% remaining AND being in Low Power mode...). Anyway, as I'm constantly surveying my environment (can't switch off mentally, it's an issue) I saw an amazing sunset and instinctively grabbed my then-defunct phone to be met with a wave of disappointment. Although happy I experienced this visual phenomenon, it made me question my values, particularly the desperate desire to capture the shot and exhibit it without just simply experiencing it. However the conclusion I've arrived at is that social media platforms have transformed us into a nation of creators and exhibitionists. This is one of the reasons I enjoy Instagram, some may argue this is a vacuous space of self gratification (partly true), however (more profoundly), it's also a collection of human experiences manifested through images shared on a global scale. In summary, as we move towards an age where humans and technology become symbiotically dependent on each other, remembering to stop and smell the roses is a basic human right, just don't forget to capture and share in the process 🌸🤖.
