HYPERTEXT: Jason Evans – Sound & Vision

Jason Evans is behind www.thedailynice.com, an ongoing, online photo-therapy project launched in October 2004. One picture per day is posted, and then replaced 24 hours later. There is no archive and scant contextualisation. Images of things which made Evans happy are shown, making this a self-fulfilling quest for positivity. The work revels in pictorialism and, while documentary in approach, positions itself at odds with typical tropes of that genre and the widely uncontested melancholy of much photo theory.

Conceived as accelerated minimalism, the ambient overload of Too much of a good thing flips the slow-rhetoric of the website. Showing the equivalent of just under 2 years’ worth of content in an hour, images will play alongside a soundtrack of joyful musics. A brief essay, released at the culmination of the broadcast, will unpack the thinking and conditions around this experiment.

HYPERTEXT is a virtual art book fair presented by Bound Art Book Fair in collaboration with Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool. Bound Art Book Fair is typically held at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, but took the decision to create an online event for 2020 in order to support our community in this time of crisis, and drive revenue to artists and publishers. The free public programme of online events co-programmed with Open Eye Gallery included panel discussions, lectures, slideshows and site-specific presentations, with a specific focus on new work, work in progress, or events which demonstrate innovative ways to present publications in digital space. HYPERTEXT is supported by Arts Council England.
