Rose Cleary will be exhibiting “WHAT IS THE VOID?”, a new spoken word performance, as part of Deptford X festival.
The performance is a continuation of work developed as part of the *Dancing Girl Emoji* residency, for Delta Sorority/Backlit Nottingham.
How we receive and spread information is changing. Log in, share the picture, retweet the link, download the app. This influences another to do the same. Mirrored images, data, uploads. Empty content. The Internet resembles a void, made up of information which merely reflects that which came before.
Is this urge to share organic, or purely circulation? Where does the power of influence lie?
Information is propelled into the countless channels of the Internet. Websites fall out of favour, become defunct, lose credibility. What use does this information then have, except to occupy space?
For “WHAT IS THE VOID?”, Rose Cleary explores the definition of “the void”, as defined by Yahoo Answers.
The performance will be repeated twice, at the following:
Performance 1: 30th September, 7pm-7:30pm
Performance 2: 1st October, 1pm-1:30pm
Venue: Meeting Room 1, Deptford Lounge, 9 Giffin Square, SE8 4RJ London, United Kingdom
Admission is free. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
