In The NY Times story “Shutterbug Parents and Overexposed Lives,” Margaret Riegel complains about the firehose of visual imagery from which children these days drink. Do photographs BECOME their memories, overriding any real brain imagery surrounding a particular event?
Is that bad?
We’re compelled to plant our phones in front of our faces, to snap images of everything from our most recent lunches to our latest fashion choices to our vacation minutiae.
When we take things in through a screen,
how much do we really remember?
Riegel’s article is a compelling argument for experiencing moments. For being present without electronic devices. For letting our senses design the architecture to Make a Memory.
