Shenkar College of Engineering and Design student Shimi Cohen posted a video called “The Innovation of Loneliness,” illustrating how social networks have changed our social interaction.
The animated work (embedded above) was inspired by Sherry Turkle‘s book, Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other and it serves as a clever book trailer for her work. Here’s more about Turkle’s book:
In Alone Together, MIT technology and society professor Sherry Turkle explores the power of our new tools and toys to dramatically alter our social lives. It’s a nuanced exploration of what we are looking for—and sacrificing—in a world of electronic companions and social networking tools, and an argument that, despite the hand-waving of today’s self-described prophets of the future, it will be the next generation who will chart the path between isolation and connectivity.
