“Forward Flash" is a Text Work on Paper by Callum Harper, a hand written poem referencing the intimacy
of love in reality, versus the means of discovering it online. In the technological era, communication,
relationships and sex have become more accessible. Queries on whether online apps and websites
are actually hindering the ways in which we interact and our social skills in daily life are arising more
often. In a world where we can find someone to join us in bed, whilst we wake up in it, smart phones
have created a social sphere based purely on superficiality or impulsive desires. The realm of
romanticism is muted, as dialogue becomes less essential the more the online dating industry
progresses. The title refers to the flashing forward of an initial hello to sexual activity on apps like
Grindr, and the lack of courting in todays age. The hyphenation however re-writes the word to Flash
Forward, a humouristic approach to the more disturbing notion of people online receiving pictures of
peoples genitals prior to seeing their faces.
