Research Project Abstract

Black Mirror first aired with approximately 1.9 million viewers in 2011 (The Guardian). Each episode centers around technology and themes of punishment and justice, as well as need and desire. The series takes technology to a level of dependency and addiction, an era Americans have entered with smartphones. As a communications major and psychology minor, I will focus on two episodes and analyze the application of Black Mirror technology on a modern day scale; I would present on the emotional side-effects, as well as how technology would fit into today’s world by relating it to production and consumption.
