The last time we visited the beach house was during spring break 2009. Upon our return, I went straight into flood fight efforts. The spring breaks following 2009 kept me close to home based on flood forecasts. But this year with the optimistic flood forecast, the coast looked clear for another family California beach vacation; hence, we are back at the beach house.
When we were here in 2009 the only technology that came with us was our cell phones. This year in addition to cell phones we have three laptops, iPods, and an iPad. We have changed a bit over the past three years. But the beach house hasn’t changed a bit.
On the wall in the living room of the beach house is a collection of paintings by Pat Sedlak that redefine technology from a beach perspective.
You likely cannot see from this photo (as it is included above) the technology terms associated with each piece of art. I am having a great deal of difficulty posting photos of the individual pieces from here - I imagine the beach house is exercising its low tech perogative. You can click on the photo and it will enlarge so you can see the artist’s beach version of the tech terms: www, on line, sea mail, dot calm, search, escape, click here, shut down, web site, log on, palm top, @the beach.gone, the net, hard drive.
Nicely played Pat Sedlak…and noted.
