Cameras, Modems, cooling fans, fibre-optic cables, circuitry.. these things don`t have an inherent life, other than that which which we choose to give.
A computer, by it`s very nature has none. A tool which depends on the users intent.
I really don`t think I have to go into too much explanation as I`m sure you`ll be able to draw your own conclusions as to what I`m trying to convey, other than the background element, which whilst simplistic, is probably my favorite section of this graphic.
The background, is an image of an attractive young lady, resting on a bed. As you can see, this isn`t evident. I have taken the image, and broken it down to pixels, leaving it indistinguishable from its origins. And therein lies the problem. The gap between reality and representation has never been clearer.
