Photographer Donna Stevens created a fascinating series called Idiot Box that feature young children sat in dark rooms watching television, capturing their slack, glazed-over expressions. She describes it as an exploration of the darker side of our relationship with technology.

Stevens explains that the series is an “exploration into the co-dependent relationship we all share with technology and the media.”

She continues by begging a few important questions: “Should we exhibit more caution about the role of technology in our children’s lives? Is our techno-paranoia warranted? No matter what gadgetry we may possess, do our problems remain human?”
