Pandemic Murals

Context: Coronavirus murals: inside the world of pandemic-inspired street art

Interesting to consider the ways in which popular culture embodies a communication medium for an inadvertent yet optimally-concise and autonomously self-propagating information pattern of ourselves, our minds and the hyper-extended cognition of (an ancient, symbolic language of) technological self-representation. The article could have done with a few more images, a few less words but I guess we (humans) just can’t help ourselves; we hyper-inflate referential semantics around artefacts as an optimal method of our own (informational) self-propagation.
