Manufacturing landscapes, people

A few things came to mind watching the film the other day. One, i kept thinking how the camera serves as yet another tool of transforming, manufacturing the natural landscape. The photos of the waste sites, reminded me of the “ruin porn” we looked at a few weeks back. The camera manufactured beautiful photos of the distressed landscapes of waste and distress.

Another thing i thought of was the way that manufacturing electronics and the consumption of electronics could be viewed as uniting and the nature dividing.

And lastly, as far as manufacturing people as machines, I recommend watching “A state of mind”.      by Kasia
