The Meaning of TEXT


After a few days of exploring the meaning of text and looking for ways to express my definition through words, image or video, I finally found this picture.  For me, text is a representation of language and serves as a way to communicate information and ideas that allows for distance in time and space which adds an element of power.  It is ultimately a technology invented by humans that is adaptable and evolves as our needs change.  I like this picture because it shows how writing by hand has evolved to adapt to the latest tool or better, how we have adapted the latest tool to ensure the continuation of our older form of technology and in this case, added the sound of the words to accompany the action of writing.  The basic purpose of communication has not changed, even if the meaning of text has evolved to encompass a much wider definition as the array of tools has increased.
