Off the grid

In the age of constantly connected fantastical devices, getting lost is the dream of man.

Everyone wants their Walden moment, a chance to detach from the rapidity of tech’s connectedness.

Ironically, we are more lonely than ever before because we are having less intimate connections.

We also get stuck outside ourselves, lost in a false urgency to build a brand identity that’s erroneous as the masks of avatars we hide behind.

We yield a multitude of personas, one real, one online, with the inevitability of becoming cyborgs.

While the robots may make human work redundant, perhaps they will also free up a life worth living again so we don’t have to get lost.
