AZ Residency Follow up — Filipe Pais

I arri­ved to Resi­dên­cia AZ with a very sim­ple pro­ject in mind cal­led Blo­op. This pro­ject explo­res the idea of “enfo” — unnecessary/useless infor­ma­ti­on and infor­ma­ti­on over­lo­ad on the web, loo­king par­ti­cu­larly to soci­al networks.

Fishes don’t spe­ak, but they com­mu­ni­ca­te betwe­en them­sel­ves. For humans, this is an invi­si­ble pro­cess whi­ch is at the moment com­ple­tely insig­ni­fi­cant for us. Who cares about what is a fish saying to the other or even if he’s com­plai­ning or phi­lo­sophi­zing alo­ne? The pro­ject doesn’t intend to put fishes tal­king but ins­te­ad to use their acti­ons to dump ran­dom mes­sa­ges to twit­ter. This work plays with the metaphor of the glass hou­se and obser­ves this very own moment of soci­al networks incrus­ta­ti­on. Con­ti­nue rea­dingAZ Resi­dency Fol­low up — Fili­pe Pais”
