Life is impacted by spectacle and increased social media in which virtual reality has superseded physical and material relationships directly influencing personal communication and interaction, radically shifting the way in which we interact and share information. Mobile devices extend the mind and social networks allow us to exist physically in one space, while virtually in many. These progressive systems of communication allow for ‘real-time’ interactions that seemingly transverse spatial, cultural, societal, and personal boundaries. My current work explores how forces of a graphic and sexualized visual techno-culture exert power over the way we share and interpret information in our electronic interactions.
