SCREEN CULTURE (United States, 2005-2007)

Technology has become a self-evident part of human existence. For instance, we cannot imagine life any more without the television or computer screen. If such media were originally developed in order to facilitate communication between people, practice currently reveals that the opposite has happened. While children are absorbed in computer games, their parents sit mesmerized by their favorite television programs. Dennis Chamberlin documented our profound relation with the viewing screen. Photographing his own family, among others, he came to the conclusion, "Once upon a time we talked with each other. Now we worship the screen."
