Life is impacted by spectacle and increased social media in which virtual reality has superseded physical and material relationships directly influencing personal communication and interaction.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