Joe Letchford / 2017 Thesis Candidate

Joe Letchford is a graphic designer exploring what is means to actively choose to disconnect from a digital presence in relation to today’s post-digital environment. Letchford asks if the possibility of experiencing a sense of connection or transcendence is directly correlated with disconnecting from an online presence.

Letchford is interested in the way that human connections are no longer bound to that of face-to-face encounters, mouth to ear, or the subtleties of our shifting limbs. Letchford’s interactive installation explores how the fluidity of technology, complementary to our existence, helps to facilitate a personal self-awareness as well as how the notion of disconnecting oneself from these connective tools can facilitate the feelings of connection and presence in nature.


Be sure to join us on Friday, May 12th from 6-9pm at the MFA Graduate Studios to enjoy Joe’s thesis work, along with the other 2017 graduates!
