India Nielsen “Crybaby”
This event has ended.
India Nielsen is a true 90s kid, raised on Cartoon Network’s revival of vintage animation, MTV’s coverage of hip hop’s golden age, the arrival of the Internet and with it primitive incarnations of social media. Growing up amongst the first generation of digital natives provided never-before-seen access to information and at-your-fingertips connection to individuals worldwide, but decades later that early excitement has given way to a millennial malaise. It is only with hindsight do we appreciate how such information overload has led to an inherent distrust of facts and the redundancy of knowledge, how global connectivity has led to a detachment from our local communities and indifference towards our immediate surroundings and how instant digital interaction has led to an unappreciation of intimacy and insufficiency of both physical and emotional engagement. It is this dissociation that Nielsen explores within her work as she attempts to awaken the subconscious and reintroduce an emotional narrative into the visual and verbal language of “online.”
