about this work

the ticket that exploded is a collaborative edition between writer Douglas Rushkoff, Shaun Friesen, and Seth Indigo Carnes. Inspired by an invitation from Carnes to experiment with his iheart variation 003 print series which explores powerful symbols in human society, the artists were invited to re-arrange and re-contextualize four images: heart, splat, pill, and camera. Ultimately, new meanings were created, resulting in iheart variation 003_010, which celebrates what Carnes states as “the grand collage that is life and meaning in flux.”

Sourced from Beat generation literature and concepts exploring freedom of expression, the fragments of text in the symbols were accessed online through google search and deliberately extracted to retain their pixelated qualities.

For this edition, language was cut from "The Ticket That Exploded" by William S. Burroughs and purposely rearranged within the silhouette of Carnes’s original splat symbol.
