“A healthy relationship with the technology that is shaping our future is one of the most crucial things to foster in our age. The millennial generation is that last in history to know what life was like before constant-connectedness, before our attention was forever altered by devices and before our relationships with one another, with society and culture were transformed by the internet. We have a responsibility to ourselves, the planet and those will inherit it from us to explore this balance. To explore what it means to be a created being, amongst all that we create.” – James Poulter
