Gh0st L1fe

December 20, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Gh0st L1fe is a photographic collaboration by Allison Reilly and Miguel Farias, documenting the countless hours today’s youth spend staring into computer screens.

Having grown up surrounded by constantly changing visuals and instant gratification, today’s youth has become fixated on providing their minds with a steady stream of fast paced media. This need is filled by a plethora of video and computer games, tv shows, and websites such as youTube and Facebook. With this time wasting comes the inevitable stress of getting work done at the last minute, accompanied by the excuses and inability to take responsibility for their actions. In order to express the destructive process of procrastination, we chose to take long exposure photographs (about 15 minutes) of youth participating in activities that are classified as time wasters. The overall effect of these photographs are an eerie representation of what comes of these activities. Ghostly and sub-human, the subject of the photograph seems no longer consciously present, and their face, bathed in the light of the screen on which they are fixated, is irradicated and blown out in a white glow. The photographs are lonely and isolating, creating an environment in which human interaction is obsolete and the environment one chooses to live in is self contained, complete with the use of headphones to even isolate ones ability to hear.

Awesome, awesome, a thousand times awesome. Loving these images by NY photographer Steven Brahms.
