We Are Here: The Pale Blue Dot

We Are Here: The Pale Blue Dot from dmahr on Vimeo.

  1. That's quite enough of Tom Cruise, Mel Gibson, Ewan Mcgregor, Nicole Kidman, glorified hand-gun footage and salutes to the American flag to last me from now until the end of infinity thank you very much. Carl Sagan is cool though. That clip would've been better if it didn't have the music and was just a picture of the dot :P

  2. could definitely have had a better choice of visuals, but it didn't ruin it much for me, i think it's an interesting juxtaposition, hes talking about how important we think we are, no group of people is more self important than the people we call "stars"...

  3. True. But then there are some badly formatted photos of real people suffering in war zones and the student infront of the tanks in Tianamon square. I ended up thinking more that 'photography' as an activity was a good example of people kidding themselves of their importance.

  4. and I don't actually think that i think that about photography...
