Enter here and now. How did we get here? How do we get down from here?
Imagine a murder mystery seen through a kaleidoscope. A journey through retro technologies into the digital age. Clues are dropped via captured images, cult film references to Antonioni and Lynch. Identities blur, privacy is invaded, a Tarantino-inspired female killer vanquishes demons to return us to the here and now.
FoMO, mofos! reflects on the consequences of continuous self-exposure on the psyche. With social media hyper-connectivity comes hyper-vigilance: we watch each other, whilst being watched. How does desire multiply with screen use?
Inspired by research collaborations with: Stephanie Auberville (FR/Brussels), Lea Kieffer (FR/Berlin), Deborah Black (NYC), Hannah Buckley (Leeds) and Anthony Carins (Liverpool)
