The lucky-cat image links to the Kawaii (cute) aesthetic, which Christopher suggests is now a channel for contemporary emotional expression, covering over the pressures of what he calls ‘24 hour capitalism’. The background is informed by Danmaku or barrage video games; comprised of caffeine-fuelled visual and audio overloads which become abstract textures of stimulating feedback. Christopher again reflects these back as a representation of the overwhelming complexity of Platform Capitalism; the social media industry.
