Angeline Meitzler’s piece She is is also fully viewable online <here>.
She is is a visual art piece that resides on the web. It is a steady stream of thoughts and comments rearranging in new compositions. The content was created using the first 100 tweets that contained the hashtag #azizansari shortly after the article about the actor/comedian Aziz Ansari and his encounter with a woman named “Grace” was published by Babe.net. The batch of tweets are randomly recontextualized every five seconds and are exposed anonymously. As the selected tweets interact on the browser, they begin to create a conversation amongst themselves as we read the opinions of others.
Angeline Meitzler is an artist and computational designer based in Brooklyn. She is interested in questioning the ideologies in language and digital culture through explorations in mark making and technology. Her practice takes the form of painting, physical computing and browser based works.
