Media and Me

Media has allowed me to keep in touch with people that are special to me consequently making media just as special.

Even though we are so integrated in our media and It has become a normality, I am many times very aware of the vastidity of the digitalised world and don’t take it for granted. When my phone has run our of battery I realize how handicapped I feel without one and how much a part of me it really is.

To understand our interactions with people we study psychology and biology to understand how our brain works. Our interactions with humans are now done through a medium of which I would not be able to explain its technological composition and the workings of it at all but seems just as important.

Media has allowed us to express and document our humanity in a different way. My baby pictures are tucked in a box and some are digitalised as blurry pictures on my phone. Babies born today will have countless data of how they talked, walked and looked from all stages in life stored in a camera roll. It seems that our data will keep accumulating and that there are endless versions of ourselves tucked in a cloud for us to refer back to. As we have seen media grow media has also seen us grow.
