Description

Artist Statement
Millions of people are sharing their intimate secrets on social media. Every day, over 300 people across the globe will tweet 'don't leave me' to their significant others or try to reassure anxious loved ones by tweeting the words 'everything is going to be OK . Part of the 'Underbelly Arts Festival' on Sydney's Cockatoo Island in August 2013, Everything Is Going To Be OK addresses this unprecedented intrusion of private thoughts into the public sphere, and how the smallest details of our emotional lives are being appropriated and aggregated by remorseless, corporate-controlled data streams that come to mirror our hopes, fears and personalities. The work features projections of short form monologues and dialogues, constructed in real-time out of data from Twitter.
