Disconnection Game

Object

This is a very personal project as I, myself, am in a situation where the people I love are far away, and the Internet is the only way for us to communicate. I was wondering how it is kind of like a children’s game, trying to reconstruct pixels and parts of phrases that are deconstructed due to the bad internet connection. The Disconnection Game consists of 49 wooden cubes representing pixels. When the parts are put together they show 2 pixelated faces — each on one side — trying to communicate. There is also a booklet that contains people’s reflections on social networks like facebook or skype.

Wood, Acrylic paint.
