So what I basically took away from this article is that there is a lot of misinterpretation that goes with communication through writing. Which I sometimes feel is the result of lack of detail in the writing, or replacing an emoticon with what a person wanted to say and assuming the other gets the exact meaning of it.
In any case, my concept has to do with those old Dutch paintings where a wife is reading a letter from the husband who's away (symbolized by the painting on the wall) (remember Frances Brown's class?) Basically I wanted to play on that idea and change the letter from a loved one into a simple emoticon that represents love, yet without the romantic gesture.
