IVP2, Nikki Sales
The recent millennium has promptly ushered in an evolution in the communication of language. Although we can now visually see the language (via Facebook, iChat, BlackBerry Messenger, or text messages), we have sacrificed our vision of emotion and personality in favor of convenience and 21st technology. I have depicted a young woman, detached and isolated, using binoculars to see through the fabricated text and into the colorful reality of her friends and family. I represented binoculars as a social object to comment on the disintegration of personal communication in the 21st century.
