Dear world you have made the persons slow
Artist's Publication. São Paulo/ Berlin: COISAS QUE MATAM, 2021. [Second Edition 2022]
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Dear world you have made the persons slow uses the World Health Organization’s collected 2020 press statements about COVID-19 as its source material. Composed using black-out poetry, the project casts light on the on-going and mostly unconscious consumption of online information. In reproducing the affect of online communication, these poems are both violently abridged and easy to consume.
In a world filled with transnational commercial chains, empathy and solidarity tend to stay local; the sudden violence of a worldwide pandemic paired with personal crises raises long overdue awareness for a more global concern for other subjects as well. Dear world you have made the persons slow contains potential further worldwide statements and recommendations. And yes, they are already there, they just need to be dis-covered.
COISAS QUE MATAM (THINGS THAT KILL)
is a label of the present, unleashed to publish sound and visual works afflicted by the now. If there are things that kill, there are also those that ignite and exhort.
Since 2017, Stefanie Egedy and Simon Fernandes have been creating this circumstance between São Paulo and Berlin.
