In Pictures: The Ever-Shrinking Gap Between Human & Machine

By Madeline - 3 min read

These photos were displayed at the Made in NY Media Center by IFP!

Technology is changing the way we do things – from the way we live, the way we work, the way we communicate to the way we see, feel and hear – and the line between human and machine is blurring. The question remains: Is our capability being extended or compromised by this human-technology relationship?

We teamed up with Made in NY Media Center by IFP to see this ever-shrinking gap through the eyes and lenses of you, the EyeEm Community. Together we ran the Human Meets Technology Mission, looking for photos to fill their Media Arts Gallery for the entire month of June. 70 photos were chosen in total – see them all here, scroll down to find our favorites and to the very bottom for pictures of the exhibition in action!
