New season equals new billboards. “SHOW” by Ines Cox is on view until the 20th of September at Design Museum Gent.
Feeds glide before our eyes, fingertips tap-dance on glass surfaces and while we scroll deeply into an endless universe, we view, tag, like and comment. Publishing became posting and posts appear on walls and in groups. The vocabulary, with which the software on our computers and phones talks to us, is full of metaphors related to the physical world. A story can mean different things now.
