Technology is Text

inspiration Challenge #23 - Snowflake

Text is like a snowflake. Each text (be it a letter or a song or a picture) has an intricate pattern or design and its own uniqueness. We take those snowflakes and build a snowball. Then, we build a snowman. Technology is like a snowman. Eventually, the snowman melts and fades away. But, with the next snowfall or season, we build a bigger and better snowman, based on the model of the previous year’s snowman. Each year, we give him fancier buttons and a cooler hat. But no matter how big our modern snowman gets, he is still made up of the original, tiny snowflake.

    The contrasting textures come out so beautifully in each of these images; they enhance your text nicely. Well chosen.

    Your connections prompt consideration of all the forms water can take, which connect with both text and technology in terms of scientific form and adaptability (which I see as connecting to technology) and in terms of texture and purpose, which I see as underlying elements in the richness of good text.
