Media Space

Monk This picture demonstrates the completely ubiquitous nature of media spaces. The notion of a Buddhist Monk,  consuming media through a portable music player while on a private jet  may surprise many. However, it provides a poignant reminder that anywhere can act as a media space for anybody. Furthermore, this picture also evokes thoughts on a modern phenomenon of media, brought about largely through the internet and social media. The sharing of private moments with a wide  audience has become common place. Indeed this example shows a private moment of media consumption being unwittingly turned into a piece of media designed for public consumption.
