The work addresses how easily we give away information about ourselves. It explores through mixed
media; print, animation and augmented reality the culture of social media and how harmless contact with
friends can in fact lead to us giving away more than we want. The work is housed in a manipulated
network tower; a kind of assemblage of social media and technology.
Information was gathered through manual and online questionnaires as well as focus groups and is
aimed at 16-25 years olds. The project was showcased at the University of the Arts London exhibition
Origins 2017, and was chosen as "best mixed media piece."
26 Artists who had strong relationship to Birmingham were asked to create a poster for each mile of the International Birmingham Marathon.
My mile explored the various sings, landmarks and ephemera the runners would see along the 23rd mile of the marathon.
The posters were exhibited at the WE_ARE_FEED Studio in Millennium Point, Birmingham.
The project was commissioned and funded by The Great Run Company.
Chasing_Likes is a Street Art project I am currently conducting across cities in the UK.
The sculpture piece is a glitched Instagram 'like' in the form of a hand resin cast.
"People chase likes online, so why not chase them in real life!"
