140 – (truth or dare)
A new performance installation by Erica Felicella
March 23 at the Kettle Art Gallery
In a world where social media has become a daily part of our lives at what point is it now controlling our dialog completely? At one point what used to be articles has become 140 characters of thoughts and statements. Are these our truths or are they dares of things that may have happened and what lies ahead.
It has also created an automatic response to the world we live in. It was not that long ago when news had to be written, printed and then delivered to your doorstep or newsstand before we even heard about it. With time on its side to allow things to play out in a more natural pace.
That brings us to today and almost one year’s worth of a twitter feed. Following a dialog that is shaping the direct world around us. At what point are we going to be governed 140 characters at a time. Is it a “truth” or is it a “dare”? That is for you to decide as you immerse yourself into the sphere.
