“Over the last century analogue photography more or less dies out as digital photography becomes commonplace.”
Is there a gradual change, of anything, to anything, anymore? Is this not a kind of strangely antiquated notion?
Technological change is not constant it is exponential.
The question is whether or not we can “keep up”? Which is a strange question, in the same way that science proposes no ontology neither does technology, so long as there is politics. Which, of course, there are not.
And there has not been religion for very long time.
(There never was, which is not to say that there is no such thing, merely that it used to be a politics, and now isn’t, even.)
