Love Is Better Than Pancakes : February 2014

Love Is Better Than Pancakes is a monthly post of artwork that explores the temporary state of the subject matter. Each month, through a set of five images, a material will be explored. Each image, like the subject they explore, are temporary and will be replaced by the next month’s set.

February 2014:

The Samsung Galaxy phone incorporates swype technology. This allows the user to simply swipe a finger from one letter to another in order to produce text, eliminating the need to press each individual letter.

I wondered what would happen if I swiped the screen without putting any thought into what words I wanted to appear. I drew little zig zags and circles and then captured whatever words the Galaxy thought I swyped.
