Theories Of The Deep Understanding of Thingsby Jenna Romano | 04.02.18
Since 2010, online platform Theories of The Deep Understanding of Things has had only one goal in mind: propelling visitors to branch out and interact with visual art that they would otherwise not see.
Theories Of started off as a Tumblr blog in 2010, and gradually branched into a Facebook, Instagram and Patreon page. Refreshing their feed with daily content, Theories Of’s founders include a clever array of art, humor and music on the platform. It is also the umbrella organization Contemp. Relics – a more specified ‘Facebook magazine’ for hardcore contemporary art.
The voices of this generation know that all it takes is one image on the internet to kickstart an intriguing dialogue – it can spread life wildfire with just the touch of a screen, and Theories Of has faced it’s fair share of internet controversies – but the platform continues to distinguish itself from others, as they examine the boundaries and potentials of social media.
