“Amorphous Ball“ focuses on the relationship between media influences and cultural mythology affecting the overall construction of human identity and perception. As technological mechanisms advance and become increasingly life-like, humanity spends progressively greater amounts of time interfacing with technology and exhibiting behavior driven by the machinery.
We’ve come to expect that the device that we carry in our pocket will be all things at once. One by one, things are beginning to disappear: we’ve lost our cameras, camcorders, postcards, letters, notes, maps, tape recorders, flashlights, radios, stereos, watches, wallet photos, newspapers, calculators, and answering machines, not to mention telephones. Like an amorphous ball, this shape-shifting device has also absorbed boredom, getting lost, physical contact, eye contact, talking, meeting, connecting, observing, remembering, asking advice, and chance discovery.
