Disconnect Sometimes {Art Journal}

journal52 Week 28 Technology

As to the techniques used on this page, this is WAY out of the box for me. I’ve joined a couple of challenge blogs, rather “late to the party,” so I’m combining prompts where possible. This page is my response to the Journal52 Prompt for Week 28: Technology, as well as Week Three of Summer of Color Four: Lavender and Gray with a Splash of Plum.

As to the topic of this piece, most everyone agrees that it is a good idea to disconnect from technology now and again. I recently disconnected from twitter, because it is too much of an enigma for me: on the one hand, it feels like you are “connecting” (at least with your “followers”) on a regular basis. But the truth is, I wonder how many people actually read tweets from others, unless it includes a direct reference to that person. So, it’s like fooling yourself. You believe you are being heard, when in reality, you may be the only one listening. I don’t like games very much.

Again I repeat my mantra: as communication gets more and more technologically advanced, there is less and less of it.
