This semester I spent my time questioning the connection and evolution between media and technology. I looked at are.na and Instagram, and their impact on my daily life. Reading theorists like Marshall McLuhan, Walter Benjamin, or painter Wyndham Lewis, I built a book that explores the question, why do visuals take over other forms of media?
Today, as we are living at the speed of light I think about an anecdote from the early 50s, "everything's copacetic," meaning everything is perfect. Is everything perfect?
We are so codependent on technology. We wake up daily and fall asleep with a computer in hand. We rarely recognize the impacts to our creative output or human behavior. I built visual studies and reflected in writing on alternatives of how we can design more tangible with conscious selection.
