Tattooed by Twitter
With this project I was looking at social media as representation of society’s voice. I wanted content on a platform where content is created and discarded at a rapid pace and to then extend and elevate the content by creating permanent body modifying artwork. The idea was to create a more tangible and permanent experience with posts or ideas people share with the world which are often not thought of again after they are liked or scrolled past.
The outside data source used was a month of my friend’s twitter likes. The data gained was analyzed then given to a tattoo artist who in turn created artwork to be tattooed onto my body.
Each tattoo is a representation of each week's data.
