on self image and fame

I find it interesting how those 15 minutes of fame due all modern creatures comes with the mandatory self-portrait. More to the point, terrified. Technology was supposed to free us of ourselves. Just the opposite, it is a magnifying glass that slowly pulls down and focuses on subject. We are no longer hidden behind blurry glass, but exposed in a larger-than-life image. Such is technology/ such is art.
