Our heart beats harder at a phone beep, we travel from picture to picture, we read books that no longer smell like printing, we make money in well-designed factories and we are inspired by a click. Technology makes its mark on us every day, believes Laura Driha, participating in Human Technology Street Art Challenge by George. And it’s good to assume that. Her work entered in the competition is called Colorful Connections and talks about how our lives are changing due to technology.
I think that urban reality can be consistently embellished by the art transposed in this huge gallery called life through technology. We have the canvas, we have the colors, we have the tools. We’re looking for artists, he says Laura Driha.
Hopefully her story it gives you an impetus to get to work and participate in the competition. Four walls from four cities in Romania are waiting for their works of art. Brieful is here. And if the first step is harder to do, read ahead what the creative process experience was like for Laura.
I am a design engineer in Construction during the day and a fine observer of the beauties of the rest of the world, I think that everything can be approached creatively if you change the angle from which you look and, of course, the tools. I am passionate about photography, I like optimistic visions, words and people who know how to laugh without having to explain the joke.
One of my creations was on the Coca-Cola collection dose and I think that was the beginning of my courage to try to explore my creative side more.
I’ve been watching IQads for many years, and creative competitions are a guilty pleasure that I don’t deny for the simple reason that the diversity of artistic manifestations is like a hot air balloon in which we can all fly peacefully. Crowded, but we’re flying.
The creative process
I analyzed a little what are the main aspects in which technology influences my daily life and I put them, in a random order, under the color filter that it changes.
The experience of the creative process was difficult. So much to say in such a small space. To be interesting, to tell a story but also to leave room for the viewer for their own interpretation.
Brief – short and comprehensive. Quite explicit and generous, especially since you could be directly inspired by the questions in the statement.
Technology, art & urban reality
I think that urban reality can be consistently embellished by the art transposed in this huge gallery called life through technology. We have the canvas, we have the colors, we have the tools. We are looking for artists.
The relationship with technology
I can without technology, but I don’t want to without it. I know its advantages and disadvantages and I think that used consciously and assumedly, it can do more good than harm.
The first computer was that model that had an eye shield … outside. Like a pair of welding goggles. My father had brought it from work so that we could learn to use it and I bought my first laptop in college, in installments. The first cell phone I interacted with was an Alcatel, also from my father. I remember giving his number to all my colleagues until I had one of my own.
How you use technology
Every day, in almost every aspect. I keep a self-imposed limit of decency and although I always have my phone with me, I choose not to use it non-stop. The same goes for the rest of the gadgets I enjoy every day.
For me, it is a constant gateway to the world, a source of inspiration and access to information that, in similar conditions but in the absence of technology, I would have enjoyed harder.
No technology & no art
Yes, I probably could live without technology if I had no choice. But without art? Not. It’s all over. And my eye is open to observe it and enjoy it in every detail.
