Through the Looking Glass Darkly
Archaeology is the study of human activity through the analysis of artifacts and other physical remains. In Through the Looking Glass Darkly, contemporary modes of communication have been fossilized and transformed into relics of a seemingly distant past. By placing the audience into the future, they are encouraged to reflect on today’s society the same way an archaeologist does an excavated fossil. Discussions to arise from such findings include, but are not limited to, the effects of technological advancements in regards to interpersonal [mis]communication, as well as the new forms of self[ie] expression and their shaping of individual perception in and outside of the digital realm.
