For the 12 days of CompArte for Humanity, Chloë Bass is dedicating her Instagram account to a denial of images. Rather than posting accessible, easily consumed photos, she will be sharing single-color blocks extracted from her larger landscape. This lack of visual identification offers both a certain social opacity, and room for interpretation. What is Instagram without images? How does social media participate in the context of refusal? Are colors social (or can they be socialized?)? The entire set of colors will be archived at the end of the project, comprising a color swatchbook for future acts of designed resistance that operate against the correct.

Other participants are welcome to join in using the #antisocialized hashtag. Those who participate are agreeing to their collected colors being used as part of the swatch book.
