Moist So Moist, along with members of the Open Systems Association, contributed to the 2013 Transmediale in Berlin as part of the YOHA curated exhibition Evil Media Distribution Centre. Very exciting for this menstruator and a superbly inspiring experience. The installation was an artistic response by YoHa to the recently published book Evil Media by Matthew Fuller and Andrew Goffey, which focusses on the pervasive presence of so-called “gray media” – an expanded notion of media or forms of mediation that provides a deeper, more complex understanding of their effects on how we act, perceive and think in our daily lives. The artists have invited 66 contributors to choose and write a short text about a gray media object (ranging from tampons to software compilers), and these texts and objects are then presented in the setting of a curiosity cabinet designed as a distribution center.
You’ll be hearing more about tampons when I’ll be writing a piece on those little buggers over the course of the summer. For now, here are pics from the festival in February.
