Signatures exchanged for passwords, a love hate relationship with digital.


We traded our signatures for passwords, but all the personality and thought behind those epistles has been diluted into shared fonts and a send button. The project “Signatures Exchanged for Passwords” by Donna Rumble-Smith takes a nostalgic look at the waning use of handwriting in the digital age and the loss of intimacy and emotion that accompanies the use of digital text over the handwritten word.
