I was at a concert the other day . It has prompted me to write this post, the event was amazing and the performance was amazing , however I have to ask the question how many people there truly engaged with the artist they had paid good money to go and see, NOT MANY why you may ask, well I will tell you, 90 per cent of people watched the concert through their mobile phone and i pads constantly waving them in the air , so what they watched a distorted image putting a block between themselves and the artist , did they realize I guess not! Did they connect no they did not.
Not only is it dis-respectful to other people in the audience who do not want technology flung around their faces it is also very disrespectful & ignorant to the artist, I know as an artist myself how I would feel if people viewed my works of art through a mobile phone rather than direct contact eye to eye, or eye to canvas not eye to electro screen.
No one really likes to be watched through a mobile phone, its a tad strange and creepy how would you feel if people were talking to you face to face through there mobile phone when your standing right in front of them?
All the above goes for all those special moments events.
