This collage is part of a series called Concentrate, that is comprised of 28 works.
The collages depict acronyms mostly used in digital communication. The common denominator for the choice of letters are their reference to emotional states of the self as well as to feelings that arise in interaction with the other.
The different materials used for the collages, paired with distinct color choices visually capture and reflect the dense emotional meaning that these acronyms hold. The vantage point for this work is rooted in the development of sms culture in which language is condensed and reduced to the common denominator of the acronym.
