About two years ago I was introduced to AdBusters, a Canadian anti-consumerist magazine. This video they recently posted slowly unfolds a story that shows viewers how moments are invaded with technology and therefore never truly experienced.
Often anti-technology propaganda explicitly tells audiences they should stop using technology. These attempts at breaking users out of their habits is rarely successful because our immersion in this culture makes it difficult to realize what we are doing in order to move beyond it. AdBusters created a simple and relatable piece that is an incredible truth to 21st century lifestyle. Upon viewing, I saw myself in many aspects of the short clip and was ashamed that I participate in this on a daily basis.
