Existence as a cyborg and reliance on a technological element cause the work to be heavily dependent on recorded interactions and responses solely within cyberspace. The virtual materiality of the artist’s data in the form of suggestive content used to construct this environment becomes an outlet for renewal, generic self-improvement and psychological fulfillment, a necessity in our current era of digital mass-consumption. The work explores the intensity of the human-computer relationship in relation to public and private space online, and the acceleration of the corporation’s inquisitive and invasive nature within this regarding our personal activities in cyberspace and beyond. The work strives to create a space of comfort and intimacy between the artist, the viewer and the anonymous, faceless characters living in our screen, through the re-appropriation of generic, exhausted, low-resolution imagery.
