Rosa Menkman - Welcome to post-digital Afterglow

During every festival I visit, I see keywords getting overused and oversaturated. Specific words, sometimes initially undefined or in dire need for re-definition (trashure, mediatic, mcluminations, othernet, afterglow, post, etc) are used so often, and in so many contexts that they lose any kind of significance. These words become omnipresent memes within a festival-discourse bubble. But for festivals such as Transmediale, that dictate quite a bit of the discourse of the contemporary media arts, this power is under exposed and under criticized. 

Welcome to post-digital Afterglow was my little call to pay attention to these evolving Vernaculars. During the Art Hack Day, I wanted to develop a working Bingo app for smartphones, that could be used during the Transmediale festival (and possibly beyond). The app would not only bring a ludic element to an idiom that is  hard to get a grip on. It would also be used to keep track of the frequency of usage of a term and its definition in context – to develop an animated thesaurus; a collection of possible definitions and shifts. Unfortunately nobody wanted to work with me so finally I ended up making a collection of six ‘stupid’ bingo cards. 


YES!

So my brain did something interesting. In a good way, for once…

The picture on the right is a piece of usual therapeutic productivity of a hallucination I encountered on Sunday morning. This particular hallucination (the type which I entitle: “a prophecy”) was so striking that I was physically unable to get myself to draw it out as it occurred, which is unusual.
Now the picture on the left is out of my 2014 therapy journal, which I believed had been discarded; however I rediscovered it in a drawer today. I realized that the two drawings are remarkably similar - strange, eh! What is overall gripping to me is the difference in organisation, tidiness and graphic detail; it’s amazing how it has become clear to me that I have indeed come quite far with my struggles as a mentally ill teen, even internally. Others may not be able to see a significant difference in the above drawings, but please mind that I have always disregarded the possibility of anything in my “rotten” life becoming nice and clean, and to see this is close to life-changing; I can actually see some shit being put together for the first time in my life. Awesome, this has made me so happy!
