SMS (texting) discourse – Save More Souls…

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

So I am beginning a texting discourse that starts with some kind of image phrase. Possibly poetic, depending on how you want to interpret it. Then I send it out to about 50 people and see what types of responses I get. For this one I received about 6 replies of varying interest. I then proceeded to draw some of the replies, scanned them and am now posting them to this blog. I am thinking of calling the project DAD (digital/analog/digital) or DADA (digital/Analog/digital/access). Any thoughts?

Here’s the responses:

Erin Texted on January 24th, 2009: Circles, Lines and Squares. It’s a flat architecture with several windows.

Evan sent: Is this a riddle?

Erin texted: In a way, yes.

Evan sent: a blue print?

Tim sent: Diamonds! (by the way, they burn at 800 degrees Celsius)

Nate sent: A Ding-Dong Pattern

Charla sent: Oh I love it!

Romy sent: This is your last leap…Oh evil one!

Kareem sent: Hm. Maybe the windows are for seeing through, for those who hope for dimensionality beyond. Maybe birds hit them.

Enrico sent: It’s not the shapes that compel you, but the spaces in between.
