How did it get to this?
🌹♡🌹♡🌹 Hello and welcome to my website! 🌹♡🌹♡🌹
My name is Giselle, I'm 30 years old and I'm from Sydney.
I'm single, but I'm undecided as to what this means culturally and existentially. I'm also an artist, and I made this website to combine my love of contemporary art with my passion for meeting new people and making amazing connections!
I am interested in art because it has the ability to offer a counter-argument to an individual's innate solipsism. Art allows an imaginative connection to the realities experienced and articulated by a consciousness other than one's own.
This sense of affinity is not only experienced by the individual audience member as an isolated encounter with an artwork, but through the broader interpretations and identifications initiated and sustained by conversations with other audience members.
Basically, I think that art does have a functionality: that of overcoming existential loneliness, which for me is experienced as a kind of single status of the soul. I have made this project with the intention of applying that functionality to one of the most contentious yet omnipresent and normative contexts of interpersonal relations: dating. Specifically, Internet dating. More specifically, Internet dating me.
I have made a little art intervention to this end here, and I will be repurposing the exhibition "Unfinished Business" as a place for me to go on dates with people that I have met through pre-existing geo-social dating apps (specifically Tinder, Happn, Hinge, Coffee Meets Bagel, Scout, Bumble, Fortu and Hey!VINA). If you don't use Internet dating services, you can also organise to date me through this site, just click the Meet Me link.
