The Death Of Conversation

Eine einfache Fotostrecke von babycakesromero.com, die die Schwierigkeit einer Konversation aufzeigt, wenn alle beteiligten Parteien ein Smartphone zur Hand haben. Ich selbst muss das auch immer wieder feststellen, auch bei mir selbst natürlich, dass man gar nicht mehr so bei der Sache ist, immer wieder drauf schaut und die Automatismen einfach ganz anders greifen als in der Zeit davor. Sollte ich mal drüber nachdenken.

I don’t have a problem with portable tech specifically, our devices facilitate our lives, but I believe it is making people seriously dull…

I started to photograph people in company on their phones as there was a certain symmetry to them and it appealed on a visual level, but as I continued I noticed an inherent sadness to the proceedings.

Before mobile phones were invented people would have had no choice but to interact, however, that is no longer necessary as we can all now “pretend’ we are doing something “important” on our devices rather than think of something to say. This is killing conversation. I believe it’s increasing social pain.

Most people used to use cigarettes as a social prop which were admittedly bad for your health but at least they didn’t turn people into ‘plugged in’ bores. Together we must be strong and release ourselves from the shackles of smartphones and bring face-to-face chat back!
