受数字化进程的发展、城市变迁和人口流动的影响,生活在城市里的人们,不断地脱离熟人社会到别处生活,人与人之间面对面的交流越来越少,生活在很大程度上是由互联网串联起来的。

我们在网络世界里生活,电脑、电视、平板、手机,这些大大小小的屏幕,就是我们看这个世界的窗口。我们通过屏幕去看外面的世界,同外界接触。

网络世界无所不包,使我们不得不依附在里面,就算再不情愿也无法完全与之脱离。这已经是当代社会我们习以为常的一种生活方式。

我们很擅长利用网络来打发时间。很多时候我们宁愿在舒适的房间里,倚靠在柔软的沙发上,对着屏幕观看别人镜头里的世界,把情绪沉浸在别人营造的氛围里也不愿走出去亲身体验现实世界。

走在路上时我们又往往各怀心事,很难注意到路边的野花绽放在枝头,花瓣随风摆动,花朵在不断变换着形状,在短暂的生命周期里姿态万千。这样的美就隐藏在我们每天匆匆的脚步之中。我们日复一日在城市噪音中穿梭,多久没有好好去听听大自然纯净的声音了?

Due to the development of digitalization, urban changes and population movements, People living in the city constantly break away from the society of acquaintances to live in another place. There is less and less face-to-face communication between people, Our lives are largely connected by the Internet.

We live in the online world, Computer, TV, tablet, mobile phone, These large and small screens are the window through which we see the world. We see and contact the outside world through the screen.

The online world is all-encompassing, forces us to cling to it, even if we are reluctant, we can’t completely separate from it. This is already a lifestyle that we are accustomed to in contemporary society.

We are very good at using the Internet to pass the time. Many times we would rather be in a comfortable room, leaning on a soft sofa, facing the screen to see the world in the lens of others, immerse our emotions in the atmosphere created by others, than go out to experience the real world.

When walking on the road, we often have our own thoughts, it’s hard for us to notice the wildflowers blooming on the branches by the roadside, Petals swing with the wind, the flowers are constantly changing shapes, have a lot of gestures in their short life cycle. Such beauty is hidden in our hurried footsteps every day. We shuttled through the noise of the city day after day, how long haven’t we listened to the pure sounds of nature?
