The Free Art and Technology (F.A.T.) Lab is an organization dedicated to enriching the public domain through the research and development of creative technologies and media. Release early, often and with rap music. This is Notorious R&D.
For the last day of the Occupy the Internet Exhibition, we decided to go out with a bang, and occupy 4chan‘s Notorious B.I.B.—/b/ Image Board. As Evan put it: “exhibiting on 4chan is more exciting than exhibiting at the MoMA.”
The reaction thus far has been positive, ranging from:
“Good old social conditioning, by forcing users too associate the irrational emotion of ‘annoyance’ with a the abstract concepts of the movement, your m00t is nothing but a capitalist candy-ass using tactics devised by Edward Bernays… sorry to say guys… this is worse than FOX”
“AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GET IT OFF GET IT OFF!”
Oh well—we’ll make Fatties out of them eventually.
