"Look Up" - Gary Turk

Look Up


In this spoken word film that has gone viral on the Internet, Gary Turk explores how technology may be distracting us from the reality of life around us. The film should raise questions about the purposes and uses of technology. In particular, a mindfulness approach encourages the questions, Is there a way to mindfully balance technology use and being present to those around us? How can we use technology to enhance our relationships with others while not missing out on the "real life" opportunities and experiences that present themselves each day?
