There is so much confusion of ideas, and a hunger for technology. Technology is taking over, and humanity has no space. It’s moved from walking into the bush to see a tree to taking your phone to photograph it. Then there is the newest craze. The selfie. Selfies are one of the most obnoxious things. You have to take a selfe to know you are alive. You cannot walk in your own presence. What time do you have to absorb our surroundings? We are becoming second citizens. Technology uses us. We have to be careful. Art in its truest sense takes on these things.
