Amalia Pica

Emojis make it easier to convey emotion in writing, but these characters might also prevent us from expressing more complex thoughts or feelings. Here, artist Amalia Pica explores how communication technology reflects the timeless human desire to connect – and the ways in which we fail to do so. For instance, her sculptures of hearing aids carved out of marble, granite and soapstone create monuments out of an object meant to help people become better listeners. They beg the question, though: are we actually paying attention to those around us?
