Abstract

In today’s day and age, people are consumed by technology. We tend to use phone and email rather than meeting up in person to share the experiences in our lives. It’s easier, more convenient, and quicker, but in-person interaction is a critical key in keeping relationships alive. Body language, tone of voice, and emotional cues are absent or easily taken out of context when using technology to communicate. The use of electronics takes away human presence.

This exhibition focused on encouraging the idea of meeting up with people face-to-face whether it’s a long time friend, or a stranger. The mural was designed to encourage you to take pause and reflect on how technology is impacting your life and relationships with others. They were encouraged to take a seat with someone to chat, or to answer the question on the corkboard prompting them to think of who you might reach out to or what you might do to directly connect with someone.
