“HOT MESS *virus version* is an interactive project, inspired by the often chaotic order of our desktops, of our thought constructs and frivolous digital repositories. All the data, the documents, the suffering and joy, the private and the public, these complex overlapping worlds, are hidden behind small symbols, permeating us as hyper-individualized beings in capitalist work and life cultures. “HOT MESS” attempts a loving and critical devotion to these user interfaces and resigns with relish to the long lost possibility of reducing data volumes or preventing their misuse. With online performances, talks, technological rituals and laboratories of counter-speculation, dgtl fmnsm examines the remaining possibilities of disentangling the data volume in the depths of our devices until they finally overheat and what we call reality finally collapses. Because: Technology is not neutral and only a feminist AI can save us.
