THE OCTOPUS WAS NAKED BUT THE CRAB WAS DRESSED
25/09/2015 / Plymouth Arts Centre / Contemporary Art,
An artist-led project by Emily Pope and Francesca HawkesworthThe show considers the function of a facebook sticker and how the circulation of ‘sinister oysters’ (a real line of facebook sticker) or similar could be subverted, to politicise and therefore prevent the morphing of message into a dirge-like communicative cycle. Is the message simply part of a circulating data stream? Irrelevant sender, irrelevant recipient, or both? Yo is an app, where the participants can only send or receive the word Yo. Yo, Yo. The octopus eats the crab and we watch it again, and again.Viral videos, apps, Stickers, GIFs and emoji are part of constant nuanced options provided in order for us to express our digital personalities, algorithms performing automated emotional reasoning. Use them with irony, use them for love, be cute, buy them for a pound, send someone a skipping foreskin after they have been circumcised – whatever. We do not create these images, they are created for us by someone else presupposing how we want and need to feel.This work will be in the PAC Home space on the first floor at Plymouth Arts Centre.Preview: Friday 25 September 6.30 – 8.30pmOpen: Friday 25 – Sunday 27 September 10am – 5pm
I got this story from an old broken love affair which is no longer functioning, so don't bother to ask. I seem to have deleted my head which was at the beginning of the story, but I do remember that it gave permission to modify and/or whatever as long as credit is given for the idea and work.Since I don't remember the name that was on the file, if my original head wants to say something, I'd be happy to hear from it, but I have put a lot of work into cleaning up this story, and would like to publish it. This is about the best I can do for giving credit to my original head, though I wish I could remember it’s name. Everyone wants descriptions, so I'll do my best. The Emojis’ contained in this story are more or less silly ideas, but later on, though it turns out they are formations, one of the participants turns out to be a former logo, magically?
