Winner Winner V3.0 by Jonathan McFadden – Art Exhibit
Exhibit on display at the Loudoun House.
From the artist: “In Rene Girard’s theory of mimetic desire, individuals imitate the desires and behaviors of others in order to achieve social recognition and success, much like the popular phrase “winner winner chicken dinner” implies. Mimetic desire suggests that individuals often desire what others desire, leading to competition and imitation as they strive to attain the same goals and rewards. Similarly, in the context of Sequence-based identifiers in software, the phrase can be connected through the concept of winning or achieving a unique identifier or sequence, where individuals may imitate successful software implementations or strive to create their own “winning” identifier sequences to stand out in the field.”
