This happened to me last year around spring break. I drove all the way home, and was ready to fly to the Bahamas, when I realized that I had left my passport all the way back in Syracuse. Normally a 4 and a half hour drive each way I made it door to door in 8 with just enough time to catch my plane. I first tried to explain this narrative with stock photos, because my drawing skills aren't what I would like them to be. I then decided to just simplify the images, as the assignment was more about the story.
In this piece I investigate the phenomenon that is modern day communication. Every time I received a text in a new place, I took a series of images that together formed a two dimensional representation of three dimensional space. The warping of space that is created by these images is much akin to the warping that occurs when we talk to people across long distances. ideas, thoughts, words are transferred between two individuals that are miles apart. Text messages alienate people from each other even more; all emotion and intonation of tone is lost in a text message. Over the course of four days I recorded all of the texts I received, the time I received them, who I received them from, and my responses.
