Collaboration withย Siรขn Newlove-Drew, Clacio, London, 2023

One effect of everything that has ever existed being made available to us online in consumable form, is that ๐Ÿ’Œ everything feels increasingly the same or familiar, nothing can be too new ๐Ÿ’Œ or too different - like an oscillating digital Samsara, cycling through increasingly shorter-wave trends. And despite this, messages ๐Ÿ’Œ , images, links, and resources retain a feeling of exclusivity, intent, and invitation ๐Ÿ’Œ Like blowing kisses ๐Ÿ’Œ into the air or blowing ๐Ÿ’Œ all the seeds off a dandelion with a certain and single breath. The blowing of dandelion seeds is legend for the make happen of mutual and requited love ๐Ÿ’Œ but is also a bright act of insemination. The act is a ๐Ÿ’Œ romantic๐Ÿ’Œ motivation๐Ÿ’Œ , and in the world of the individual, the seed spreading is micro to the macro feelings of desire, wanting to communicate, ๐Ÿ’Œ merge or link.๐Ÿ’Œ Little pockets of intense private specialness ๐Ÿ’Œ and send ๐Ÿ’Œ buttons and huge conglomerates of shared ๐Ÿ’Œ prismatic hyper worlds bump ๐Ÿ’Œ along; marrying, absorbing, and passing through each other; separating, bursting and re merging. We channel our algorithms into a combined babbling stream๐Ÿ’Œ , pooling them into shared Instagram posts, Pinterest ๐Ÿ’Œ boards, YouTube playlists and google drives, where they are gathered in nets and fished through. Or sent ๐Ÿ’Œ as a packaged gift ๐Ÿ’Œ , presenting as specialness,๐Ÿ’Œ as cuteness;๐Ÿ’Œ as a glowing puppy, a girl, a kitten, a carrot, a symbol,๐Ÿ’Œ a bubble; reflecting the bounds and bounces of the material world .๐Ÿ’Œ There is the understanding that what floats is at the end of its life. The threads of a spectral ๐Ÿ’Œ world and its beautiful constitution ๐Ÿ’Œ is tied up with its hypnotic fragility and imminent disappearanceโ€ฆ At once fleeting and becoming- like with a bubble containing ๐Ÿ’Œ its own microcosm, the outside world is wrought on its exterior substrate, fleeting effervescent ๐Ÿ’Œ sanctuaries๐Ÿ’Œ , constantly remodelling.ย
