thumb (v0.0.1) has been released as a desktop application under Multipresent Anti-Aggressive Communal Computer, an antiauthoritarian computer. 2x2cm drawings, in the expanded field, has been undergoing virtual transgression.

A big thanks to those who submitted.

this enquiry considers a virtual space without virtual attributes such as materiality, scale and space - in the transgression to virtual, an invisible dimension becomes retranscribed in which the attributes are not detected. The sense of materiality, scale and space is lost, while thumb takes this transgression and its belonging attributes and turns them into the premise of the show. A shift which has consciously occured, from 2x2cm drawings to entities in a virtual space with the curatorial agency as key
