The second artifact that I feel goes with my community is the radio. I will be using this artifact for my writing in class.
The simple radio (also including mp3/ipod connection and a cd player) is a device networks music enthusiasts and musicians. It also allows them to connect. Think about it, musicians aspire to be heard or played through the radio, and music lovers turn to the radio to hear their favorite songs or discover new music.
The connection between musicians and their listeners is created through emotion and feeling that comes through listening to music. Memories are reflected through the emotions that can be felt.
Another idea that connects to my community more is that when one decides to try to play the guitar, they are inspired by the musicians they love and hear through the music that they listen to.
