Fotopub Repete: Poisonous Antidote
Mark Farid (UK)
To coincide with the final reading of the UK Investigatory Power Bill (Oct 2016), Poisonous Antidote is an online and physical exhibition exploring just how intimately you are able to comprehend a person - their humour, temperament and rationale - through only their digital footprint. From the 1st - 30th September 2016, www.poisonous-antidote.com was a live newsfeed of artist Mark Farid’s real time digital footprint. This included all of his personal and professional emails, text messages, phone calls, Facebook Messenger, web browsing, locations, Twitter and Instagram posts, as well as any photographs or videos Mark captured. Regardless of the time, duration, or intimacy of the content Mark amassed, there was no restriction on the content publicised. Viewers are invited to interact with the website, to listen, read, and watch all of Mark’s communication over the month.
