Let's Panic Art + Design is the cousin of WTSN Art + Photography featuring a mixed media combination of paint, collage and text. Let's Panic attempts to bridge the divide between art and music where text replaces lyrics and colour replicates sound. The idea of synesthesia - or the condition where sounds are seen as colours - significantly factors into the art work as does the cut up text collage technique of Tristan Tzara which is incorporated to produce societal reflections, song titles that don't exist, twists on cliches, the speech of imagined characters, things overheard in passing, evocative phrases, bots conversing with bots and / or your inner dialogue while looking at art.
