Wet Unboxing (Big Mac)
For ‘Cosmos Carl – Platform Parasite’, Frost has opened a Big Mac underwater and uploaded it to the free stock video sharing site Pexels. ‘Cosmos Carl – Platform Parasite’ is an online platform that hosts links provided by invited artists. Cosmos Carl encourages artists to reclaim commercial online platforms to produce and display their art. This means that the work is displayed on a website that is neither designed nor hosted by the artist. Frost tackles the ultimate ‘on-the-go’ food, by making a video opening the iconic Big Mac burger underwater. This video has been circulated via the free stock video sharing site Pexels. The potential fluidity of this free sharing format is matched with the global ubiquity of this iconic fast food.
