Des Puey

Des Puey (b.1995) is an artist whose practice is heavily influenced by the Internet and its various aspects such as memes and (cyber)emotions. Her art explores the understanding of the current surge of (cyber)emotions which she refers to as an “Emotional Cesspool”. A term coined by the artist herself, it describes the current state of the Internet, which she sees as a complete mess of emotions fuelled by users in the forms of memes, posts and click bait articles. It is full of aesthetics, jokes and pop cultural references but has also become perhaps the most important bearer of culture and influence. Her body of work carries a sense of despondence and painful irony in response to her sociological perspective on the “Emotional Cesspool”.
