Andrea Ucini / Failing due to illiteracy

View Portfolio

Andrea Ucini explores illiteracy in his illustration of a typewriter without keys. The illustrator ponders the causes and consequences of illiteracy in this austere image of a hollow typewriter that has become obsolete; a blank piece of paper blends into the background.

The illustrator’s comment pertains to the millions of people who lack computer literacy and the impact computer illiteracy has on finding a job.

Ucini’s sparse imagery, centered in the picture frame with minimal detail, expresses the isolation and hopelessness of those who have been left behind in today’s digital world.
