Technology and Traditional Culture
As we all know, the technological advancements are on the move at an unprecedented speed in the present society. Some people think that as technology develops traditional culture will be lost whereas some others do not think so.
As far as I am concerned, the technology does harm to the traditional culturein some sense but it can also protect it from dying out. In other words, the technological advancement is a double-blade sword. We need to realize it in a didactic way.
First of all, the technology is a little harmful to the traditional culture. Due to the emergence of the new technology, some forms of art have been dead for many years. Some cultural heritage has been threatened. Take the jade carving for example. The craftsmanship has been disrupted due to the popularity of the new technology. The works of art has been produced through the machines rather than the hands of the craftsmen. Therefore, the art has lost the most important part of its taste. Most of the artistic works are the products of the factories.
Secondly, the new technology helps the traditional culture spread more widely. For example, many exhibits in the Palace Museum have been available visually online. Visitors do not have to go to the museum but just stay at home to enjoy the heritage. It is the technology that has made all this possible. One more example, Peking opera is the national essence of our culture. The plays of the veteran artists have been kept with the help of the technology. We will feel that these great artists are not far away from us and that we can still learn from their good performances. Nowadays we all read many good books, which have been a most important carrier of our traditional culture. Thanks to all the presses and publishing houses, we can read so many books and they help carry on our culture through their printing technology.
To sum up, we should be aware of the disadvantages of the technology and make the two go hand in hand in harmony. On the one hand, the technology helps to protect and spread the traditional culture. On the other hand, the traditional culture may promote the technology development.
