INTERNET ART: networks, performative programming, and web as context

Joe was here.

I’ve been obsessed with the persona of the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, that social has created throughout these past eight years. The attitude, silliness, pettiness, and valor that he has shown this country really caused me to enjoy him as this country’s VP. He’s brought awareness to issues that fall by the wayside as a “less than worthy” cause. The project will be mostly a form of net performance where Joe will “pop up”in various parts of Columbus (and maybe other places) either taking selfies, being petty and bringing awareness to serious issues, through his own interesting way.

2 Truths and a Law

Struggling to come up with an idea I thought about my previous project concerning laws. screen-shot-2016-10-20-at-6-01-29-pm

I didn’t know whether I wanted to continue adding onto this game, or creating a new game around the idea of where every level the game plays the classic game of 2 truths and a lie. Except here it will tell you two truths and a law. The law can be broken, without anything bad happening to you, or actually gaining you something positive. If you break one of the truths though, something negative will happen. Either a loss of a life, or loss of points.

This would be a series of mini games in the fashion of WarioWare

Still not sure, but that’s all I got for now.

Final ish

so basically I don’t have that strong of an idea

 

but adter my first “dancing” performance I left with my head buzzing. Although I felt sexy and empowered and I made money, I also learned who is and is not here for black bodies.

I also have been called a slut, for dancing.

two people told me I’ll never find a boyfriend now since I started dancing.

 

i was talking to another black gay person and he said “black people aren’t allowed to be sexual in the same way as white ones.”

 

however, I’m not sure how to get a challenge of this concept to real life.

Final Project Proposal

Most of my art projects outside of this class (and a few in this class) deal with death in some form or another. I want to try to change that and turn my focus around. Instead, I want to focus on some celebration of life. We associate death with everything bad such as sadness, weakness, sickness, seriousness, darkness, unhappiness, etc. For this project, I will do a piece that is lighthearted, funny, and overall full of life.

Idea 1: The performance will consist of me controlling social media accounts as a persona wearing a muscle suit. I will act as serious as possible.

Idea 2: Create a plug-in that turns your mouse into a kitten that is really freaking cute and meows when you click something. Or a dragon that breathes fire. Whichever one works.
