What is reality? Reality is an individual thought. It is how you perceive something in your own reality. You feel this through your senses. Reality can be both individual and social. Individuals with the same characteristics form a group and the way we perceive things are oftened influenced by others around us. Culture and generations also play a big part.
Communication has changed over the years and generations now experience it differently. We are all influenced through social media, access to the internet and advances in technology. Peoples realities can be different even when they are experiencing the same thing. We can let others share our realities by the way and type of art we create. VIsual communication is now very strong. Visually and our knowledge and interests also influence the way we perceive reality.

“Everything you see or hear or experience in any way at all is specific to you. You create a universe by perceiving it, so everything in the universe you perceive is specific to you.” – Douglas Adams
