Make them Look Up

“We aren’t doing anything to make them look up!”- Neil deGrasse-Tysson

A quote by Neil deGrasse-Tysson on why kids spend all of their time with their heads down looking at Facebook and playing video games. Captured by my studiomate Rusty at the Natural History Museum in NYC on March 15, 2012.

  1. This seems a bit off. A child’s imagination is.. excuse me, used to be, one of the most fertile creative places. It’s not our responsibility as adults or a culture to create more, better shiny objects or new devices. I’d argue it’s our responsibility to leave them to their OWN devices. Shut the computer off. Limit screen time even a little. Then let them figure out how to be bored and then get unbored and create an inner life.
