Intermedia Poems on Twitter, Aysh, 2017-21

For the past few years, since 2017, I've been making social media happenings on Instagram and Twitter.

As an Intermedia artist, I found the prospect of using social media platforms, just like the Blockchain, as an exciting method of expressing myself through visual happenings which either utilise text, digital stickers, images or some form of visual poetry.

The world of social media is now our streets, an open book and a place to create fun and inventive methods of self expression, engagement and ‘drama’. Maybe many will see it happen or maybe no one will. The whole point is that it happens. Something that is thrust into the metaverse of existence. No major plans need to be made, no massive budgets… just an attempt. Just some words.

What if the ‘Tree of Knowledge’ wasn’t a tree at all?

What if it is still to exist?

Sentience’ is part of my ‘L1l1’ project. Which, in turn, is part of a larger body of work called ‘Visions From Al-Asiia’ aka ‘Aphrodite’s Spaceship/Ishtar’s Space Pod’ [2019-21]. The project explores what freedom means far into the future through the mechanical body.
