first of all – this is in response to a clubhouse room. I have not had the time to blog, as its honestly more effective to speak on clubhouse & then im exhausted. I also get that is a private platform but at the same time people don’t read – and reach is an issue to me that im not focused on gaming, but finding a larger solution.
SOOO was going to do my first organized drop this week (last post) and this kind of goes along the lines. I took a nap and woke up to 100000 messages of beeples pic that had a pen15 in it
MY PERSONAL IG IS NOT FOR MESSAGES ABOUT ART OR NFTS OR ANYTHING WITH DIX
MY ART 100000% ABIDES BY GUIDELINES. BUT BC WE CANT TRUST SOCIALS AND EVERYTHING IS SO INCONSISTANT – IT HELPS ME ORGANIZE SHIT AND ALSO – BC I AM ALWAYS WONDERING WHAT WILL TRIGGER A BOT (rightfully so) JUST DON’T DO IT.
I PREFER TWITTER MESSAGES. (dont send me links or images in DMS).
NOW …. ANYWAYS… I woke up to being tagged in this images / 100000s of messages. At first I was annoyed.. but then the post went missing… verified large accounts can usually get away with more (ex. they can swipe up to OF even tho thats agianst TOS) but DOES THIS EVEN VIOLATE TOS???
LOL – In reality we know its robots who are not perfect and thus humans who are wearing clothes often time get flagged and have no way of getting their accounts back.
SO tonight I looked at these TOS under a new lens…. WTF is real world art? IS this actually biased against digital art and the metaverse? REGARDLESS of what you think about beeple… his art being validated by christies leaves no question that his art is “real world art”
these are IG TOS. another validator that everything I do is perfectly within what can be posted. and why I only work with DILL doughs. It used to be that the female body was much more heavily policed on IG. since I have never actually gotten an image warning (dont report me plz) its interesting going through beeples entire catalogue that THIS is the line. I have limited screenshots of my old account, but it was never met with negativity. the clubhouse and NFT demo I thought was just diff… but is society becoming increasingly scared of a D!CK ??? his image 1000% fits in line with what IG says is acceptable…
NOW there is lots of beeple content that is borderline unacceptable. I imagine it gets reported all the time.
THIS REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT BEEPLE …. is the point I am trying to make.
having your voice removed. having your work removed. having your reality dictated by an algorithim is exactly why we not only need the blockchain… but need to make sure we are not just building the SAME BIAS ON THE BLOCKCHAIN. HOW CAN WE MAKE SURE THAT IT IS SAFE FOR EVERYONE SO THAT WE CAN AVOID REGULATION.
lets learn from tumblr, fb, ig,
LETS try and build places to speak in decentralized places
NOW LETS ALSO TALK ABOUT HOW A SWIPE UP TO A DOWNLOAD OF THE IMAGE IS STILL THERE. YUPP. IMAGE COULDN’T BE ON THE GRID BUT ANY ONE CAN SWIPE UP AND DOWNLOAD THE LINK???
whatever your feelings are about beeple, the peice… do you not see how this is problamatic?
(also ya 99% of online trafficking is on fb not PH)
Im fcking tired. This topic is exhasting
Bc it’s not just about explicit content… and once again… a body is not explicit…
for more read / listen to more of what I say but to also summarize some things from last night
- my art is not about gender or female empowerment or fuck men its about not shaming / stigmatizing sexuality
- what ive learned from this project and continue to learn and conversation is more important than anhything
- It’s really simple to lose your outlet of communication
- to understand each other we need to not be scared or shame whats different
