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).

OMG my 13yrs old cousin announced to my grandma that they might be trans (female to male) and wanna be called by Tom instead of Sophie (not real names 'cause privacy but you get the idea)
My grandma answered " I am learning every day from my little children & I am really proud of you for searching a new path in your life"
4 years ago the sane grandma was homophobic. Everyone can learn, change at every age.
This was the positive post of the day 💖
