About this event

How does distance and anonymity affect how we interact and communicate online? Inspired by celebrity culture and online trolls this piece draws on the power of the public to nurture or destroy. Viewers are invited to interact with the piece by ‘tweeting’ the rose. Using sentiment analysis, each tweet triggers the release of either water or poison depending on the intentions of the viewer. This piece was recently shortlisted for the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize in the New Media category.

‘If you leave it up to the audience, they can kill you’ was created as part of Creative Youth Network’s ‘Creative Futures’ programme. Ran in collaboration with Rising Arts and Paper Arts, Creative Futures is a young artist development programme that provides participants with the skills, networking opportunities, studio space and professional business support needed to turn passion into a creative career.
