Large printed fabric tapestries/backdrops, and facades sporting pixelated Google images of wealthy homes, stacks of papers in a place a “data room” (images and written diary, mental ramblings, and daily observations stacked in this “data room” for visitors to pick through), video of printers analog-ing digital content, and a pseudo lecture/performance reading the downloaded “data” and writings. A project presenting a case-study of a human in 2017 – revealing the inevitable contradictions of human thought, opinion, and affectively life. The piece illustrates daily experiences of the 21st century person and contains installation, writing, video, and performance.

The piece is an attempt to combine our current understandings of a person's digital and analogue worlds – to show, debate, document, and begin a process of analog-ing a person’s flood of digital data, information, and overall digital experience. All of this leads to a discussion of our contemporary reality and daily experiences, and subsequently, into a discussion of “what exactly IS our current reality” in many aspects. It is a project where the artist plays the part of both the artist-scientist-researcher and also the subject under study. I have a current interest of “paintings from robots” looking at the digitization of images online and then printed as is, resulting in something resembling a very impressionistic digital interpretations of the original image – an image that has been fed through a robot, compressed, digitized, compressed, then printed as is. I am also currently interested in experimental/experiential installation spaces and a language/poetics of the 21st century.
