Art Destroyed The World And It Won't Stop There

Coombes and Johnstone have spent the last two years collaborating on an iPhone app that would allow the smart phone to measure loneliness. It works by wiping the phone through your arse crevice to take measurements of bum-hole acidity. As personal hygiene declines following long periods of isolation the levels of acidity correlates perfectly to loneliness. The app was a total failure so they decided to make a film about the horror and futility of making art.  queensparkrailwayclub
