(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ screamage

We live in a mediatized world of wild conspiracy theories, impending ecological crises, pernicious narrations, where ironic + nihilistic viral #influenza pictures are concurrently cropping up on innumerable devices. A toxic cloud of digital images is drifting from the monitors in parallel to the degradation of the physical environment.
? How does pixelated information get caught in the network of an organic body? What kind of stage (a)effects does a work with incompatible Internet content generate? What in the web of images is actually t r U E?
In response to the oculocentric organisation of the world, the hybrid stage production adds materiality to pasty digital images and processes them ¯_( physically )_/¯. It combines movement, video, the production with objects and sound, *through irony* translating the logic of the Internet into a physical space……………...The relationship between the body and images spreads open the virtual spaces of intermediacy; /between the organic /imaginary and digital /among memetic trash /between the atmosphere /affect and sensation //at the intersection of experience, apparition, premonition, and fact. Between the past, the manifold presents and – not virtual, but tangible – > future.
