(Archive) Midocracy Sinkhole Vortex

Welcome to the Midocracy Sinkhole Vortex. Here, we are all mid.

The Midocracy Sinkhole Vortex is an irl structure emulating online phenomena which have percolated into our collective western subconscious and found itself distributed all around us.

Mid ⎻ short for mediocre.

Fringing satire and ethnography while participating in self-conscious stimulating navel-gazing, the Midocracy Sinkhole Vortex is a sculptural multimedia display of questions of class structures and dynamics, emotional triggers, computational systems infiltrating the material world, and the circulation of cultural capital.


Midocracy is the special place where cool has percolated through the underground to finally vegetate on the margins of cringe. In the midocracy access holds the most and the least currency, concepts are tokenised and style is monetised, absolutely nothing doesn’t have a price tag and everything is up for grabs.
