Is communication through drawings the future?

The world as we know it consists of words and expressions. We all have made an unspoken deal to assign certain symbols in a specific order to describe reality and give out information. And it works great as we are embracing it so many years.

Is communication through drawings the future?

Technology and humanity are close related - no doubt.

But something is still not there. No matter how many ways we can invent to describe reality there is always a layer below the spoken and the written that lies there unexpressed as we roam through the our modern tech days

Everything we do is based on that agreement. The agreement that for certain things we are going to use certain symbols. A one-to-one relation if you will. And is working fine. Until we question our selves. Is this all we can get out of humanity

If I take you - a fully functional human being - and place you into a park you are pretty much free to move as you like. Move you hands, run, stretch your legs, sit down. However If I take you - a fully functional human being - and place you into a small confined room you will soon notice that you won't be able to run. If I move forward and tie your hand and your legs - you a fully functional human being - will be able to do very little things

Now, have you ever noticed that technology is an extension of the human experience? Is not just about science and making cool stuff happen. Is part of our humanism in its core basis. The alphabet, typography, the internet, facebook and all these stuff are there to extend us. Not to confine us.

Do they extend us? Of course they do. We have ears all across the globe. In every part of every country. We know each other. We are fully connected. But at the same time we are lacking our humanism values. The ones we can't express - but only feel.

You will notice at every environment you go - humans tend to play roles given to them by cultural acquisition. We are supposed to do things because of the cultural dynamics. However when we get tired, or exhausted, or bored a different 'us' emerge. And that is always the case. That 'us' has more to do with feelings, random thoughts and random creativity scarsing all around the place. Somehow when things get tough we return to the basic psychological layer that we posses - the one placed from childhood

Hoping that all this makes sense to you: the only way for you to be fully functional as a human being in a digital world is to be able to be in the park - and not in a confided place. It is not the human that needs to adapt to technology - ram limitations, bugs, the alphabet - but it is technology's role to adapt to the full extend of humanity

And that is possible with painting. You see - a paint - is the medium (a, b, c, d, e, f, g ) and the message it self. A painting - a free movement of the arm as it is driven by emotion and brain patterns - is the best way for a human being to express their emotional state that takes no words into consideration. It is a non verbal type of communication. can feel it

People spend years over mona lisas painting. Over pieces of art that baffled the mind. the amount of information they carry is just marvelous. Not only they say things about the creator - the stroke line, the way the lines move across the paint, the colors - but also say things about how the painter perceive reality it self.

Kids do draw. And adults do draw. The internet as we know it set us free by connecting us together. And it is great. But at the same time it brought our communication levels to a halt. To a replicated, all factorized version of who we can really be.

Wikipedia notes:

A doodle is a drawing made while a person's attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes. Typical examples of doodling are found in school notebooks, often in the margins, drawn by students daydreaming or losing interest during class.[1] Other common examples of doodling are produced during long telephone conversations if a pen and paper are available.
Now I don't know about you - but I would be very interested in anything that comes from a human while not using the brain. Because that information comes straight from the soul. And that - is priceless. Because the soul and our intention drives our everyday normal lives. The - why I wake up everyday - our subconscious thoughts - can only be captured when we don't actively think about them.

Shareapaint is the first global attempt to overcome the alphabet and to take the next step into the future of humanity by expressing the unexpressed. The place where you are the medium and the messenger. Join us to this great journey.
