Olivia Tucker: Teletectonics

Communication, being the cornerstone of the internet,
continues to act as a primary motivation for being online.
Just as the Earth’s topography has shifted and evolved over time,
the internet has shaped our methods for communication, creating
a new landscape of human interaction. These composite coastlines
combine together various landing points of fiber optic cables,
proving that instantaneous connection creates virtual closeness.

My goal when creating “Stand By” was to play with the idea of taking the loading symbol, normally a symbol for frustration, and turning it into a fun experience. By making a flip book, I have created an object that is completely analog and opposite of the digital loading symbol. An experience that is usually accompanied by stress and frustration is now a playful, mesmerizing experience.
