Emotions Invented by the Internet
Emotions Invented by the Internet by Jessica Herrington and Anna Madeleine is an exhibition of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) artworks exploring emotional states instigated by new technologies. The feeling of helplessly watching a slow download; the feeling of trying to make two devices find each other through Bluetooth; or the feeling of finding that perfect GIF – these emotions range from the tranquil to exhilarating, funny to frustrating. Through 360 degree animations and dream-like digital relics, this exhibition presents a simulation and a remedy for future mental states, in a meditative response to living with new technology.
