Communication is not only to exchange logical information but also to exchange emotional information. Therefore, communication could develop into both complex and artistic forms. Humans interact in both manners depending on the culture and environment as evident in the past. One example is the Japanese communication method established on the exchange of short poems called Waka, which was popular among elite class around one thousand years ago. Regrettably, this type of urbane communication has been overlooked by the modern generation. Recently, various types of new communication media have emerged, e-mails, blogs, and especially social networks such as Twitter and Face book. There are several similarities between the Waka communication and these recent changes in communications using digital media. We attempt to scrutinize the recent communication media and discuss the possibilities of a renaissance in artistic communication using digital media.
