We live in an age where the “black mirrors” of our time are omnipresent and constantly trying to attract our attention. They hang on every wall, stand on every table, are gripped in every hand – the digital surfaces of our televisions, computers and smart phones. In their incessant demand for communication, they are the emission of the media machinery of a society which is constantly fed with an easy everyday drug through its dependence on technology and which constitutes a “new man” in a significantly changed form.
