I have to admit, I was one of the people who resisted a Kindle. I'm old-fashioned when it comes to books. I love to hold one and feel the turn of a page. Books are also always available when you need them. With Kindles, the virtual page turning doesn't evoke the same feeling. If you don't charge it up, you can't read what you want. (Yada, yada, yada...)
But, I now travel a bit more than I used to so carrying a book has become cumbersome. When the hubby decided to just gift me one, I have to admit, it changed how I felt about the whole "carrying a book to read" attitude. I'm. Now. Addicted. It's. Amazing.
Naturally, when I came across these broken Kindle images, I thought it was so ironic! Artists Sebastian Schmieg and Silvio Lorusso created a book documenting 56 Broken Kindle Screens. When technology breaks, we are at the mercy of the devices since we rely on them so heavily. There's an abstract beauty I adore about these images. The contrast between art and technology is a reminder that all of can fall victim to technology.
