Photographer Captures Children Hypnotized By TV, Proving The Zombie Apocalypse Is Real

Artist Donna Stevens seeks to explore the darker side of our growing love for technology.

zbieChildren, especially in their early years, are like sponges. Place them around an adult with a foul mouth, and they will begin mimicking their language soon enough. Set them in front of a television screen to maintain some peace and quiet in the house, and they will, undoubtedly, learn from what they are viewing and begin displaying similar behavior.

Which is why the art series titled “Idiot Box” by artist Donna Stevens is so significant and deserving of dialogue.

Stevens sought to explore the darker side of our love for technology, therefore, photographed children watching television. In the portraits, glossy eyed vacant stares are captured of children engrossed in their television program.

All the children photographed were between 3 and 4 years of age, and Stevens hopes this series begins a dialogue between adults of all ages to begin limiting the role of technology in their lives and the influence it may have on their kids.

As a mother herself, Donna recognizes that she maintains a certain level of techno-paranoia, yet still wants every individual to ask: “How much screen time is beneficial to children’s’ learning and imagination, and how much is too much?”

I need more TV; there is no outside world!

With peculiar interest in zombies growing worldwide, one has to wonder what underlies the fascination to be like the zoned out, half-dead. Perhaps it is because on a subconscious level, human desire to understand themselves, or where they are going…

  1. That’s why they call TV programs. The rolling bars are purposely there to induce trance. Take it a step further and record a program with another recorder. Play it back and you may now see the rolling light bars moving constantly through the screen. This is often seen in movies where there is a TV running in the back ground. That’s because the speed at which the film is running is different than the speed of the movie you’re watching on TV, so you can capture those rolling light bars. These were put in on purpose when TV came out and could be removed but they wanted the hypnotic effect to continue. Now add all the flashes during the commercials, that’s called imprinting the conscious mind. They say once induced to the TV it only takes 10 seconds or less to bring you into the hypnotic state. Since children are still in the Theta stage approx. 4-7 hertz (pulses per sec. or vibrations per sec.). This is a state of asleep and awake consciously dreaming but not fully awake. The majority of children 3-6 spend most of their time in this state. EEG’s can show this and explains why they have difficulty sometimes separating imaginary from real world. Also this is where they learn language and SOCIAL behavior. Now you see how manipulation of the children can be done so easily through the programs on TV. There’s lots more and if anyone is interested one book called Controlling The Human Mind by Dr. Nick Begich is a great place to start.

    Love and light to all
