Mural Painting at PMQ: 11-14 May
D*Face is fascinated by society’s increasing appetite for information, the latest feed, the most recent tweet or post rolling into the past on the wave of a finger: like, unlike, follow, unfollow. We’re living in a world where information is fed to us; spoon to mouth, one after the other, repeatedly… but where does it all go? What happens to this information we digest? This constant barrage of images and information we knowingly and unknowingly absorb, on every journey, whether that journey be a lifetime or merely the time spent traveling from home to work, is relayed to us whether we want it or not. Billboard advertising, TV commercials, audio jingles, we store some and forget others like a jammed rotating billboard displaying different adverts all in one beautiful mess, selling us a ‘luxury lifestyle kids toothpaste for 12 monthly repayments’ like a real time, real life game of ‘Exquisite Corpse’.
