Bassa risoluzione - Low resolution
May 23, 2018
Author:
Massimo Mantellini
Category:
Non-fiction: General/Other
Description:
Internet has radically changed our approach: to depth, to information, to social relations,
to the markets and to culture. We listen to music in new digital formats, we photograph the world through the small lens of our cell phones. We no longer read newspapers, preferring the casual information which bounces among the social profiles of our “friends”.
But we have adopted Ikea kitchens and Banksy’s graffiti, new low-resolution objects which fill our lives today. This book investigates the relations between our choices to downsize and the changes in our connected society. Often, options like these provide glimpses of a new intelligence; other times they summarily recount our usual superficiality.
In low-resolution technology, real time overwhelms archives. Internet, the place of documentation, is transforming itself into the place in which everything will be quickly forgotten.
