Codependents Collective: Toxic Online Relationships

By Sean Tobe
Codependents Collective: Toxic Online Relationships aims to combine a live audio-visual experience with the videogame livestreaming community and the long-standing “copypasta” phenomenon (to spam copy & paste text). With a live-streamed Twitch.tv performance, I will be “copy-pasting” chatter’s absurd comments from the public chat of toxicity-supporting streamers into custom programmed, chaotic visual effects. Words fly fast in the chatroom…while the game is the content, toxicity can pass by a few eyes or make one else rethink their life.
