"You know if you walk onstage with intent to improvise or to communicate in the highest way possible with some people, and everyone is on a cell phone filming you, you’re not having a sort of a telepathic moment with these people. You’re having a moment with technology and basically you’re being duplicated. And I know this might seem abstract but what I’m saying is that our natural order is being destroyed, our natural way of communicating with each other is being altered. And perhaps it’s the way of the future, but I’m not part of the future."
— Patti Smith
