the funny thing about dril posts is that they actually do have a structure to them– they hit a kind of conceptual caesura halfway through, a point where there’s no inevitable logical connection between what’s been said and what’s still to come. here, the first sentence didn’t need to result in the second, yet it’s not “lol random” either; the speaker is angry about his boss’ draconian ferret-kissing policy, and reacts in kind, and even the reference to a “screen saver” reminds us that we’re in an office. it’s a narrative progression that, despite having an internal logic, alienates its punchline from its setup. who the hell is this person?

one thing i love about @dril posts is how they all seem to take place in a universe that is somewhat like our own, but with the habitus of white middle america taken to a bizarre, absurd, but strangely logical conclusion. take this one, for instance: 

so we have our setting: a security guard protecting the american flag in the betsy ross museum, something almost archetypically american and middle class. but once again the first part, or setup, for the punchline, “fucking the flag,” careens the joke into an alien punchline that still, given the setting, makes sense. @dril’s security guard character imitates a sort-of cop-talk, the banter of a security guard, “buddy, they wont even let me fuck it”. you can imagine a similar response from a guard at any museum, but we’re talking about Fucking the American Flag, here. i really love @dril. 

it’s astonishing that a human being thinks of those posts. some person, someone out there whose existence we have to infer, because all we know is that those posts occur and they must be coming from somewhere. “the @dril​ tweeter” resonates as “the beowulf poet” does, except beowulf (which i’ve only read in translation, so i’m not an authority) has never made any use of the english language as baffling and sublime and somehow primally interlaced with the stuff of human consciousness as “IF THE ZOO BANS ME FOR HOLLERING AT THE ANIMALS I WILL FACE GOD AND WALK BACKWARDS INTO HELL.”

This is my favorite post, I am so glad I found it again.

TAKE A CHANCE ON ME and put yourself in my picture!

during september I will present an artwork that consists of a QR code + url + description that invites (art?) people of all kinds to make an add, not for their business or goods, but solely to ‘sell’ themselves. I will be open for submissions (www.yourmessagehere.tumblr.com) during this month and will present all the adds in book + new exhibition.

Within the art world, while the internet has definitely changed how we relate to geographical distance and dispersion, it has also made certain senses of marginality more acute, making the centers of Berlin, London, and New York appear more central through overexposure. We/I most definitely get left behind.

I believe the mediation that runs through most of my work is in some ways related to this sense of relative marginality and geographic ‘isolation’. Likewise there’s also a clear sense where if you’re working primarily with online platforms you’re going to be marginalized in relation to the rest of the art world. I’m interested here in a possible intersection between mediation, connectivity and alienation.
I think the ‘art world’ is geographically very unequal/ unevenly divided, but I don’t know if that’s my problem anymore.

The artist is present.
