work in progress art thingy that discusses e.g. suicide and depression
i've been making some little "art" pieces about depression in the information age. the idea is that a lot of the systems we use feel overly friendly and cheerful as if they were conversing with us, such as facebook greeting you with a "good morning" or how phone voice assistants respond with witty quips when asked questions like "do you like me" or "what's your favourite colour".
the images i'm making imagine a future where this trend gets out of control, and the cold, analytical nature of tech takes on a much more sinister and negative form. they deliberately evoke both modern (material, fluent, flat) design trends and potential future ones (brutalism).
