Discussion #9: Reflective Writing–Analysis of Science Fiction Imagery

I’m studying for my English class and need an explanation.

i need just 250-300 words for this

must meet all criteria and be written in very good quality

Use this assignment as a place where you can express all that you have learned about the topic of humans and technology in either science fiction and in the real world as they are depicted in the imagery. Draw some conclusions about the importance of this topic in the world today. Then, respond to at least one other person’s contribution

Respond to this writing from other student : I found this image extremely interesting. I believe I see a few different themes throughout this image. The artist uses mostly dark and bland colors to contribute to the dreary, sad tone. I believe that the woman is the only thing painted with color to try to put emphasis on how humans are not living a good life anymore. She is shown with her animals walking the opposite direction of soldiers and the large war robot. I believe one large theme in this is the tendency for man to get carried away with their creations, similar to Lawrence in The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect. Lawrence got carried away and created a supercomputer that was basically a god. While this giant robot doesn’t seem to have that same power, it looks very imposing and could be another example of a scientist getting carried away in a project. Another theme in this image is how advances in technology can actually cause harm to society and don’t correlate to our well being. Similar to social media technology in the real world, the repercussions of advanced technology in war could be the end of humanity itself. Advances in technology aren’t always for the greater good. While there have been things like advances in healthcare that have contributed to society, advances in war technology serve to harm it. While the giant machine isn’t shown harming anyone at the moment, one can only imagine the kind of destruction that it will cause. The woman in red seems tiny in comparison to it. The last theme I see in this image is that technology can be used for destruction. This doesn’t only speak to advances in war technology. For example, hackers can cause a lot of destruction in the sense that they can steal identities or scam others. Advances in smart home technology could serve to be destructive, because if the advanced AI in homes becomes sentient, an event similar to the events in a terminator movie could become real. I feel that this picture could become a real thing in the near future with how fast technology has been advancing. We are already in an age where we are creating sentient AI. Our technology has been progressing at an exponential rate. It is not difficult to see a reality where giant war robots are made in the future. I feel that throughout the course, I learned a lot about the dangers (and benefits) of technology and what science fiction as a genre is. This image goes to show the dangers that our continuous advances in technology have. This image also fits in perfectly with the elements of the science fiction genre. It is set in a time that looks realistic to us, and it shows things we know like cows and dogs so that it is more relatable to the viewer. Overall, there are a lot of different things to take away from this image that can connect to the things we have learned throughout the course.
