It is the spare geometric context that makes this image of a person talking on a cell phone work as expression. I compose the image as a series of boxes and surfaces, enclosing the subject’s head and hand as a symptom of disembodiment. On one hand, she is reaching out to talk with someone out of the box. Yet she herself stands within a series of enclosures – a brown wall separates her from the foreground, a yellow wall surrounds the opening in which she stands, and within that wall, a doorway packages her head in a black void. This image could represent a society that steadily drifts away from face-to-face interpersonal communication, in favor of detached, disembodied cellular contact.
