Observations of a New Era
This book is the culmination of a semester-long project that required in-depth research into a topic of our choice. We were asked to translate complex ideas into meaningful messages while also considering the traditional format of a book.
For this project I was drawn to Marshall McLuhan’s apt predictions and “inventory of effects” of life in the age of digital media. From Plato’s famous mistrust of the advent of the written word to the wariness of the screens we now have within arms reach at all times, I plunged into the debates, the science and the opinions of our generation’s new technologies.
