Message Me
(May 2011 – March 2012)

Message Me exhibition explores the development of communication; from the picture language of Egyptian’ hieroglyphics to the short form text messages of our modern mercurial world. Printing and letter writing served as the main form of communication for about 2000 years. The last 100 years, saw a spurt of inventions, such as radio, television, morse code, fascimile, computer, mobile phone and the Internet. Message Me examines the messages that have been sent for a variety of reasons. Be it through a formal letter or a short message, the contents very often provide an insight into the situation which prompted the writing: complaints, love, advice, confession, absence or friendship.
