Are you a prisoner of technology? In our interview with sociologist Sherry Turkle, author or ‘Alone, Together’ it already became apparent that due to digital technologies many people are developing a style that she calls “I share therefore I am”.
Turkle argues that we have come to think of ourselves as in a “tribe of one,” a development that has tremendous implications for how we think of ourselves as a society. We also have a new intolerance for being alone. And our technology has encouraged us to see being alone as a problem that can be solved. But this, too, is a problem.
For Go Outside Magazine, artist Felipe Luchi created this wonderful campaign, titled ‘Jailhouses’.
