Beyond Facebook’s Linearity in Time & Space by THOMAS CHENESEAU
January 7th to February 7th 2014
Beyond Facebook’s Linearity in Time & Space is an original visual performance which examines the limits of the social network interface it is displayed upon and deconstructs the temporal space of the website. Facebook is diverted and used both as media and medium, for dissemination and exposure, and a new space of creation and existence of artworks. This artistic research consists of a series of Screenshots (pictures and videos), Scrolling timelines, and Grids of multiple pictures. Plastic material such as Facebook’s codes and a series of progressive visual feedbacks are appropriated. All these make breaking down the timeline imposed by Facebook possible.
