Fragile Kommunikation / Illustration (Book)

Fragile Kommunikation

I am fascinated by the way communication works or – in many cases – does not work.
Communication has seen a tremendous amount of technological advancements. Today, devices such as the smartphone allow to overcome spatial and temporal distances in shortest time. Although we ended up communicating all the time, there are situations when communication just seems to be doomed to fail. My diploma thesis is a reflexion on communication difficulties in daily life. A list with 100 reasons why communication could possibly not be achieved is illustrated by 100 images. My intention is not to take things for granted but also consider the unlikely.
