Remember the thrill of receiving a letter or a postcard in the mail? I mean the mail box outside of your house or apartment.
Remember the warm glow you felt when you heard the voice of a loved one on the other end of the telephone line?
Better yet, remember the smile on that person's face as you met each other and shared a heartfelt hug?
What about the contentment of curling up with a favorite book, unwilling to budge or be distracted until you got to the very end and learned of the fates of the characters you had come to know and love? Perhaps you couldn't wait to discuss it later with friends who had also read the novel, everyone excited and agreeing or disagreeing about the interpretation of events.
I don't know about you, but for me, these moments were precious. Today, they seem to only exist as a flicker in the museum of my memory. Technology has transformed and reshaped our relationships - our very reality. For better and for worse.
You may be able to see the nostalgia pulsing through my latest art piece, entitled, Lost.
It is a photo manipulation, which is a kind of digital art where elements of various images are united to create a new composition. It features the work of many talented artists. You can find the full list of credits in the description at DeviantArt.
This is one of my first attempts at photo manipulation. I've been enjoying fractal art so much that I decided to try this as well. I hope you enjoy it. I really love that I can use a fantasy image to express concerns of the real world.
