Comment Burst, 2017
Plastic, vinyl, paper, and confetti. 12’x6’x4’
Comment Burst looks at comment culture as a storm cloud that you willingly dump on yourself. It would have confetti in the shape of letters that deconstruct hate speech / aggressive ignorance you often find in comments sections on news/social media sites. As the piece splits down the middle, the full comment would be readable on the inside of the barrier that swings down. It’s about critical listening- but also about the license people feel the internet gives them, and whether we give them sanction. I’m thinking of it as an analog to reading the comments section online.
