Abstract

A book of poems dedicated to the impact of digital technologies on intimacy, family, space, and the interpersonal. The speaker and subjects of the poems are ambivalent toward their relationships with the screen that has become an extension of themselves. On the one hand, they believe that new technologies hold tremendous possibilities for increased, meaningful human interaction. On the other hand, they are anxious that new modes of communication will inevitably lead to the sacrifice of other modes and perhaps meaningful human intimacy as well.
