Binary

Spring 2016

The technological shift in our culture has opened up gateways that now change the way we interact with the rest of the world. Although beneficial in many ways, the internet has impacted one of life's simplest day to day actions: the greeting.
This sculpture seeks to represent how the greeting has changed across the years while alerting viewers to cyber threats. The straight forward and often intrusive internet voice is represented in the hand as it invades personal space. As represented through the lack of information in the hand, the internet allows invisible users, via social media, to be whom ever they say they want to be. Although a message may seem friendly, binary code will be unable to tell you the sender's appearance, age, gender, tone of voice, body language, etc. So be aware of who you make contact with on the web.
