Taken from the language usurped by Twitter, the title for Ryan Gander's I'M TRENDING is prescribed to the way in which multiplied uses of a word, idea or concept grow in popularity based on the nature of repetitive use.
By the artist's account, this project is viewed as a collision between the book and an artwork; what happens when various forms coalesce? Paralleled with the "Loose Associations" conferences initiated in 2001 (and just as eclectically diffused in assemblage and interpretation) Ryan Gander's I'M TRENDING is a series of tools and clues from which our established patterns of logic, thought and design are questioned and redefined.
I'M TRENDING is the first joint publication between Three Star Books and Thea Westreich/Ethan Wagner publications.
