Threads of Communication


Hand-cut woodblock prints

Communication through technology is an integral aspect of our lives, but we do not have to think about the complexity of the process that underpins it. Threads of Communication reflects on the changes that have occurred in technology and gives insight into past telecommunications, where every telephone call involved a physical human connection. My body of work is inspired by my great-aunt’s career as a switchboard operator in the 1950s, and from understanding the complex process involved in transferring calls. Material representations of a linear path evoke the metaphorical connection of the past and present, both technological and generational.
