The lucky-cat image links to the Kawaii (cute) aesthetic, which Christopher suggests is now a channel for contemporary emotional expression, covering over the pressures of what he calls ‘24 hour capitalism’. The background is informed by Danmaku or barrage video games; comprised of caffeine-fuelled visual and audio overloads which become abstract textures of stimulating feedback. Christopher again reflects these back as a representation of the overwhelming complexity of Platform Capitalism; the social media industry. Bad Data 1&2 were produced during the Bad Data Set project and are stills from animations generated by motion sensitive computers installed in the gallery that change the nature of the animations based on the presence of alien bodies in the space.
