Trying to figure out Twitter before heading off to the circus.
Twitter: Oh, the Inanity!
“Wondering if Twitter is essential to my life.” January 2, 2009

The above statement was my first foray into the world of Twitter. I was curious as to what it was all about, so signed on that day. I started Twittering away throughout the winter, but found that as spring approached my Tweets were declining, along with my interest in Twitter. I had no followers, and more importantly, I had no one I wanted to follow. The quality of the messages astounded me. They were boring, inane, and trivial at best, and pornographic, preachy, and commercialized at worst. Winter, and my interest in Twitter, waned.

“Art will arise from Twitter” April 5, 2009

In April, as Twitter became a rising Internet social phenomenon, my interest in twittering sank. I was amazed by how so much inanity could prevail on one website. As an artist, I decided to transfer my feelings about Twitter to canvas. I started a series of small paintings inspired by Twitter. Each day, starting on April 5th, I clicked on Twitter and selected a “Tweet of the Day” from a screen of 20 random Tweets. The daily Tweet was written in a journal along with the date. The title and subject matter of each painting would be the random Tweet of the day, that is, my artistic interpretation of the Tweet. Because I was going to do at least 30 paintings, I chose to work on a small canvas and decided to keep the size standard throughout the whole series. I also chose not to over-think the paintings in order to provide spontaneity and freshness to each subject. To further emphasize this, I chose no specific style for this series. I gave myself total freedom with each painting.

About half way through the series, I realized that my paintings were unintentionally paralleling Twitter in several ways. Tweets are limited in size as are my paintings. Tweets seem to be quite spontaneous as are my paintings in that I have chosen no set style. Tweets are instantaneous as are my paintings which are a quick visual interpretation on canvas.

The paintings are an abstracted, humorous, sarcastic, and personal exploration of inanity. In general, I am still no fan of Twitter, but I have had a great artistic romp full of creative freedom visualizing on canvas random public statements, thanks to Twitter.
