The Everyday Panorama
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.
