Neologic (2019) is an audiovisual symphony between digital geometric shapes and analogue morse code signal. The videos aim to show pulsating patterns that represent initialisms commonly used in network-based communications - from LOL to NSFW and OMG, which are part of what some have referred to as ‘onscreen language’ born out of ubiquitous electronic devices.
Embracing the aesthetic traditions of geometric abstraction and minimalism, the work is an attempt to reflect on the impact of technological developments on the evolution of language by optically dissecting letters that form contemporary expressions used in online platforms.
The project hopes to consider the power of technology with its potential to influence how we interact and behave through new systems of communication that continue to emerge over time. Part of an ongoing series of works with recurring elements of digital culture, text, communication and abstraction.
