OMG

“OMG”, my 2011 CalArts MFA Design thesis project, is about describing a nascent cultural moment as defined by a developing visual literacy. We are developing a new set of linguistic behaviors and desires as an intuitive response to our environmental condition; the linguistic evolution is directly tied to the influence of the internet and the proliferation of tools and forms of instant messaging. The project looks at the idea of the animated GIF, our modern-day celebrity heroes and the idea of the “collage impulse” to develop an allegory for our expanding notions of symbolic language.
