Reporting on The New Technology

Our relationship with technology has been changing since the first technologies were created. The changes on campus as of late have, however, been pretty drastic. For the first time, students are recognizing that not only do they use technology, but technology utilizes them. Technological individuals have asserted their role in shaping our world, which has meant many changes to our campus. This series of photographs documents the new role technological individuals play in student residences.


These students have made an effort to include Hilda, previously a tool of fashion media, in their circle of friends.


This resident of Radnor maintains her old relationship with her cell phone.


The ability of the controller to control humans, as well as avatars, is demonstrated by these students.


This student maintains the same relationship with her toothbrush, despite recent changes in attitude.


Unfortunately, the world is not without dangers. This mouse learned the hard way that operating in the world comes with risks, for humans and technological individuals.

    Wow. These images are awesome and very tongue-in-cheek artistic!

    This made me laugh! Very cool idea, especially the ones who maintained their “old relationship” with their technology–it made the technology seem so much more personal. Good job!

    Really great idea. It seems so funny when presented to us in this light, but I’m sure there are many people who would feel really guilty if they stopped using an avatar in a certain game. It makes me think of imaginary friends. When we were little some of us would invent playmates and then feel bad about growing to old for them (well at least I did, it could just be me though). Nowadays kids can actually give their imaginary friends visual form. They can make them online for all to see! I would assume this would make it more difficult to let them go, or perhaps it would allow you to hold on to them longer.

    Well sorry about my tangent. In any case your project is hilarious!
