colloquium

Have you ever been involved in a conversation so painful you were scraping for excuses to leave? Or found yourself so involved in a discussion you lost track of time? Every day we use our body, voice, and technology to communicate with family, friends, and colleagues. Seventeen senior Graphic Design students would like to invite you to explore these relationships through the use of sight and sound in the exhibit: Colloquium.

We use computers in our everyday conversations from from talking on the phone, to texting, to having a conversation with someone via a social network. I want to use these modern tools for communicating to visually express the humble beginnings of todays conversations, that we take for granted what it took to understand dots & dashes.



Reaction Statement:
I enjoyed the process of putting on the show from start to finish because, for me, it was a chance to break away from being confined to the size limitations of a piece of paper or a computer monitor. I am pleased with the way my piece turned out because it incorporates the range of media, digital, paper and paint, and processes used to create them, from creating the movie and and alphabet key digitally to enlarging and cutting out the alphabet on the wall-all by hand. I think that my piece accomplishes my goal to use a combination of new and old techniques to show and help the viewer understand that the long distance conversations that we all take for granted were not as easy to understand or decipher in their humble beginnings.
