Spontaneous Photography – World Wired Web

This image hit me like a ton of bricks, and I instantly connected to it. Its jumbled, twists and turns of wires only reminded me of the electronic and virtual connection between us all. 

It is funny how I can love a friend so dearly, that I have never, ever met but yet sit next to someone on a bus and all but ignore them as I tap on my 5.25 inch mobile screen. As much as this ever-expanding digital world has connected us and drawing us together, introducing us to people and events we otherwise would have never had the chance to meet and experience, it  has at the same time pushed us physically apart, from our everyday real world lives. Joyous births and sorrowful passings are readily and quickly announced on social media as well as all the wonderful and tragic events in between. 

The only constant in this world is change, and the only thing that can stop a people is progress. we have long since passed the point of no return, as each of us had become entangled in our own personal wired web.
