Description

  • Instead, provoke introspection and lead the audience to reach their own conclusions as to whether they are comfortable with the impact of such and such aspect of technology on their lives
  • Acknowledge that we have become a very different society in a very short time and ask the question: “Should we consider this more carefully?”
