Minus is a finite social network where you get 100 posts—for life. While you can reply to a post as often as you like, every time you add to the feed, it subtracts from your lifetime total. When you reach 0 posts left, that’s it. No exceptions.
As mentioned in one of my first posts and repeatedly brought up since then, I think social media is fundamentally flawed in this day and age, a sentiment Ben Grosser certainly would agree upon.
In his work, the artist focuses on the cultural, social, and political effects of software and his latest project, Minus, is his take on a social network. It shares some aspects with traditional social media websites –like a main timeline and personal user profiles, but every user can publish only one hundred postings in total.
You can read more about the fascinating project on the artist’s website or join the network yourself —something I wouldn’t recommend for any other social network.
