Minus, a work by artist Ben Grosser flips the foundation of “social media” upside down:

Minus is a finite social network where you get 100 posts—for life. […] How disorienting will it be to interact on a platform that doesn’t try to induce endless engagement from your every waking second?

This piece is actually relevant in so many ways; not only does it reverse the logic all of today’s media appears to be built upon, but it generally provokes to reconsider the assumed infinity of resources in this world (here: attention of human beings).

The London-based exhibition “Software for Less” this was created for features a whole range of exciting works, some documented on the artist’s portfolio.

My occasionally sent email newsletter has all of the above, and there is of course also an RSS feed or my Mastodon/Fediverse profile.
