Referendum (Tell Me How Do You Feel)
Referendum (Tell Me How Do You Feel) is an interactive online work which requires the viewer to vote on the artist's citizenship. The digital Referendum (Tell Me How Do You Feel)reduces the practical and legal arguments for citizenship to a flood of visuals concerning the country of the artist's birth and the country the artist now calls home, along with a quote from Rebecca Solnit's book Wanderlust: A History of Walking. These two animated GIFs rapidly cycle through images associated with the United States and United Kingdom while the ballot waits below.
This digital work is a sister piece to the physical installation of the same name, and was commissioned by Fermynwoods Contemporary Art's Open 7: Can You Hear Me?.
