In an effort to re-engage with social media in a way that held my attention and challenged the constraints of Instagram as an online publishing platform, I devised @infinite_canvas. The work experiments with the visual restrictions of the Instagram grid and a serves dumping ground for all of the media that would otherwise sit unused in my phone and computer. It is my public mind map; a never-ending collage that merges, mixes and distorts art, objects and things I find in the the world and the web. As I continue to add to the work, the concept of scrolling – that simple action by which we control information flow – takes on a greater significance.
The best way to experience this project is within the Instagram app, please check it out that way if you can.
