Research consistently shows how through the years more of our time gets spent using media, how multitasking our media has become a regular feature of everyday life, and that consuming media for most people randomly takes place alongside producing media.

It is perhaps time we move beyond wondering whether all of this is good or bad for us, and accept it as part of our environment - like the air we breathe and the food we eat. In other words: we should think of our lives as lived in rather than with media.

Ultimately, media are to us as water is to fish. The question is: how can we live a good and beautiful life in media? The media life project at IU offers a compass for the way ahead, focusing on the goal of creating art with life.

  • CES 2012: Samsung Smart Evolution Kit TV / Age of Smart Applicances; Live from Samsung's CES 2012 press event! By Tim Stevens posted Jan 9th 2012 4:45PM OLED: An OLED ( organic light-emitting diode ) is a light-emitting diode (LED) in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compounds which emit light in response to an electric current. This layer of organic semiconductor material is situated between two electrodes. Generally, at least one of these electrodes is transparent.
  • He may have had a laser in his watch and a radio in his lighter, but even James Bond didn't sport gadgets tattooed to his skin. Now he could, thanks to the development of ultrathin electronics that can be placed on the skin as easily as a temporary tattoo. The researchers hope the new devices will pave the way for sensors that monitor heart and brain activity without bulky equipment, or perhaps computers that operate via the subtlest voice commands or body movement.
  • From a 2003 study, we can see that only does the average American (regardless of age, class or gender) spend about 11 hours PER DAY using media - but he or she also does not realize nor remember their media use most of the time. in the twenty-first century, we navigate through a vast mass media environment unprecedented in human history. Yet our intimate familiarity with the media often allows us to take them for granted. Media use has become: automatic.

  • example loved ones communicating at the airport: calling every couple of seconds: empty communication, micro-coordination as compared to the dancer in Pedro Calderon’s story: to an external observer this seems to be an empty (meaningless/purposeless) activity – like our immersion in media seems meaningless. however, one could see this as the dancer explains when asked: as a form of pure thinking, a pure being-in-the-world the world is hypercomplex in part because of media, yet we strive for redundancy - which can be seen as a harmony of all parts (“this makes sense; this is beautiful”) so for example in relation to this particular presentation: I am trying to give you an aesthetic account of media life perspective – telling a good/harmonious story – I am alos trying to do this within the set limits of this conference (within 10 to 12 minutes), which is an ethical account of the MLP. this position – ethical as well as aesthetic, praxeological as well as ontological and epistemological – is what we see as the solution to the so-called “emptiness” of our hypercommunication: the position of the super-observer the super-observer is a solution to Luigi Pirandello’s dilemma that every human being shares: we cannot see ourselves live. however, in our current media life, we CAN. we can, because media make visible what is invisible like art, as Merleau-Ponty observed, media put at a distance what is otherwise too close: and today this means: our lifeworld, ourselves.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raoul_Vaneigem media life is a life where we observe ourselves live this in turn enables and powers a reflective position vis-à-vis our own behavior our argument is that this position should always be aesthetic and ethical, like the Bil’in/Avatar example: it is fun and seriously consequential at the same time. 4. and this is how we need to look at ourselves in order to be able to take responsibility for our desires
