Meaning of Information Technology

MIT surveys the history of information technologies and modern techniques of information production, storage, transmission, and retrieval, while emphasizing understanding not only the technological transformations in interpersonal, organizational, and mass communication, but also the technological, social and political changes that underlie the movement toward a digital society. Very much a "philosophy of technology" class, MIT taught me how to respect, protect, and minimise not only my digital footprint, but also the data of those around me.

The quality of the news content available on social media specifically has resulted in the pancaking of emotional cognition and political intellect, as represented by my ability to relate to or think appropriately towards other instances of news has been jarring and horrific. This piece embodies my conflicted feelings about social media, and how the current ways we spread the news affect people of my generation.

I created this piece to emphasize minority representation in tech industries and the daunting reality that technology has permeated every aspect of our lives. I based the image on The Creation Of Adam in the Sistine Chapel, to emphasize that we reach towards technology for our knowledge. Here, God is played by the epitome of modern tech, while Adam here points towards underrepresented identities in STEM- in this case, a woman of color.
