Second instalment of my interview with Abbie Foxton is up on her website – many thanks to Abbie
The internet is the greatest art installation we ever built.
Made of light and longing.
The internet is a mass act of clairvoyance, the biggest seance in the universe, and we are all seers and the dearly-departed there.
The internet is a selfie that god is taking.
It’s an infinite sculpture made of blue smoke and our passive-aggression and we’ll only recognise our creation once it steps down from its plinth and puts its hands around our throats and throttles us in the name of love.
The internet is the scatological vapour and mist of consciousness made mercurial replicant of the quotidian and material.
It’s a weapon of mass disjunction.
It’s how they put a barcode on the soul.
It’s McCarthy’s wet dream.
It’s the missing one in black hat with hands behind the back who walks ahead of the hearse which is your life.
It’s a brain on fire.
