Full Circle Arts is delighted to announce the following commission:
‘Emoticon Intelligence Agency’ – Simon Raven
I will devise a series of public performances that combine specially made ’emoticon’ costumes with enigmatic messages that have to be decoded. Digital images of each performance will be posted to dedicated ‘Emoticon Intelligence Agency’ social media pages, encouraging audience interaction. My aim is to investigate the meaning and value of emotional intelligence in digitally mediated culture/society, and whether a lived experience of disability might contribute to emotional awareness.
