This collage that I created, inspired by Fritz Kahn’s “Man as Industrial Palace”, emphasizes how far technology has been integrated into our lives. Now, so much of our senses are filtered through various forms of technology that it is also as if technology has become a part of our being, a part of our DNA. Thus, man and machine are interconnected, and the extent of our connection appears to continually grow over time. So now, the important question, is, “Who is ultimately under control?” While I am a strong advocate for the benefits of technological advances, I also warn against the possibility that these devices control our lives. We must maintain human control.
