My artistic styles revolve around dystopian futures, sarcastic deconstruction of hypercapitalism, digital surveillance, #queer genderfucking, the right to (total) privacy, anarchist thought, free software, cryptography and hacking.
I might lurk for a while. I'm an asocial and pretty much closeted queer nb. But happy to try to engage with mastodon & .art community.
what an amazing album.
there's so much i still have to learn.

distroid is the former soldier and body-builder now working for a private international security firm, his bulging muscles criss-crossed with blade and flame tattoos and his face screwed into a macho grimace above a tight black T-shirt bearing the Monster Energy Drink logo. He has been involved with rap, rave and street dance before but today in the virtual plaza he’s making sure this evening’s pop-up Monster promotional rave goes exactly according to the corporate client’s design. Next to him sits an enormous translucent green polythene bag full of empty cans. And the speakers are stacked taller than he is.

in the future-present we have digitized everything but mostly to prevent you from owning things. personal data is freely bought, sold, and lost; nobody is ever held accountable. firms spin breaches to increase sales.
the public web hosts an ongoing international conflict that nobody wants to talk about, especially not the people conducting the conflict. hostile actors have weaponized clickbait as a form of psyop.
random strangers are often politically-motivated robots.
...aaaaand as I'm reading an interview with Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey (Art), I'm realising I credited only the writer and not the artist(s)...
Discovered this amazing comic book in the local bookshop called INJECTION written by Warren Ellis. It's dark, and I particularly like the mix of mythological/paranormal and technology in a kind of futuristic way.
Feels very close to me.
