We Are (Media) Zombies

2,049 views

Published on

It is sometimes said that due to our near-constant immersion in media, we (will) all become zombies - media zombies. This presentation argues why this may be a good thing, as in media life, the neither/nor of the zombie coupled with its impersonal sociality may be capable of bringing about a better world. Living our lives inside of a mediated environment (the premise of being media zombies) can actually help us to see ourselves as deeply connected to others, letting go of our self-absorption.

Argument based on the book "Media Life" (Polity Press, 2012).

  • 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.

  • Previously, the reality was hard, it pushed against it, broke it and ran out the teeth on the other hand, until the skull cracked. Not too long ago they were fluffy, the ending could not intervene to hand grasp and understand quite, and echoed the call for her to no response. And now it is because to be frothy, a sprawling pile of soap bubbles, which burst at the slightest touch, and prove nothing. In this account of the disappearance of reality rising to a question, but it remains on the tongue and can not be uttered. She still speaks out, then it sounds like: "Get out the reality really ?"...

    10. 10. [living in media means] “a person will no longer be a worker(homo faber) but rather an information processor, a playerwith information (homo ludens).”Vilém Flusser – 1990
    11. 11. if we live in (not with) media we are zombies if we are (media) zombies we can change reality the question is:what reality would zombies make?
    12. 12. “If everyone was living in public it would change their whole ideology of thinking and it will result in nobody giving a fuck about their old concerns about style, or what their friends are thinking because all of our issues and problems will be visible to the whole world. Then the masses can poke fun or judge or what ever they do and we will have to start focusing on actual problems in our lives instead of worrying about media”
