This piece is in the form of a graphic suite of 31 digital collages for the 31 days of January, starting with ‘#wellness’ and ending with ‘#trump’. The piece is a meta-lexicon and cipher for the platform it takes as its medium. Hashtags and appropriated and subtly reworked images are collaged together, using the virtual platform they inhabit as a ground for détourned mingling. The artist plays a disassociation game with hashtags, using them as an unpredictable pathway to the next word or phrase. As the hashtags accumulate, each addition to the snaking words is combined with an image from the ‘Instaarchive’ to create new puns and misapprehensions.
