I am currently taking part in a Vandal/. project called 'The Capsule Vending (V/.)' The V/. Machine hosts a variety of work from international artists from different disciplines including traditional media & new media. They believe that by having conversations with people, people will become more aware of what they are creating and consuming, a practice they think we need to be conscious of, especially with the ever-growing rise of fake news and meme culture.
