A Skype Conversation Between Sisters
December 9, 2011 § Leave a comment
Technology has connected us in ways that have never been possible before. The relationship I maintain with my sister in this book reflects the immediateness and impermanence of modern communication. We no longer treasure our conversations, especially those had via digital media. Text messages are as quick and easy to send as they are to delete. We no longer keep a box of correspondence tucked away in our desks, under our beds; we store the reflections of our daily moments electronically, often without thinking, never looking over them again, passed pressing send. My intention is not to simply share these conversations with you, but also to show the ways in which technology has changed communication and relationships.
