Datadisplay is a catalogue of digital concrete romantic abstractions by Ang Frances Wilson. Composed on the device that tethers us to one another, these smartphone revieries use GUI (graphic user interface), emojis, text and image to proffer a curious and delightful enquiry into romance, tenderness, color and form. Without feeling wholly referential, the GUI elements begin acquiring their own kinds of meaning, both in their asking for interaction and in their elegant and line-fraught visual vocabulary. A fly buzzes a menagerie of multicolored hearts. Petals are pixels, sometimes never wilting. Angels loom on the screen’s thumbprint. Wilson’s visions are wholly contemporary but timelessly wistful.
