Poems about technology are a recent phenomenon in K-M Skalkenæs’ work. She took an education as a web developer about two years ago, which has obviously influenced her outlook. Likewise it sept into her artwork and poetry.
It never did dethrone her previous preferred topics though. Nature and transience still take first and second place.
However, musings on how technology shapes the world has become somewhat prominent lately, as she reflects on her work and its consequences.
Technology evolves so quickly, making reflections on the matter a necessity – whether through art or something other. This is one poet’s attempt at a contribution – based on her own experience.
