these are more images for my new brief, how the advancements of communication have affected our affection between ourselves. these are some images i did today about how people feel about letter writing in a negative way. 'it takes forever, it might as well be air mail'. 'it's kind of labour intensive'. 'i think stamps should ahve the post men on it, they do all the walking'. all quotes from family and friends, i have asked about letter writing.

these are super light. im sorry. i used the lightest pencil ever and i dint want to ruin them with pen. the top one is the letterbox with a door, representing the process of posting a letter and receiving it. the bottom is a grandfather clock with phone, represeting the time it takes for someone to pick up their phone, if their not at home or unable to pick up.
more more more.
I've been looking at how time of the process of communication can alter the effect of the intended affection. these are initial sketches. also looked at how we type love on our keyboards and phones and how they spelt out type using morse code.

i got given a book called post secret, this was all about peoples secrets they'd put anonymously on a post card. i took a couple from the website and changed them into how i felt about my loves ones. one about my parents and one about my boyfriend. they're really quick sketches but it's just a visual of what those images could communicate.
people used the telegraph and morse code to communicate with people quickly within a day or a few hours. I wonder whether this way people if people lost a bit of affection that was intended because of the lack of handwriting and the time it took to receive the message. i created some images for this, not of the affection but simply of the coding, and the machine.
