Exhibtion: Standardized Authenticity (Statement)

The social web is inherently disconnected from the physical self. The ways in which we use User Generated Content sites fall into two primary categories: situations in which our detachment is exemplified, and those that desperately strive for connection. They sometimes have clear boundaries, and other times our web activity exists in a dualistic state, unable to discern itself between the two classifications. The work aims to explore the bond that exists between the subject and camera operator (which is sometimes the same person) and the viewer and the videotaped space/event. The goal is to investigate the point in time in which a person in a video ceases to be a subject and transforms into an object.

Angry Gamers (2010)
03'03'', Editions 5 + 2AP

 

Angry Gamers examines fixation with social media, gaming and ultimately, our emotional interconnectivity as a populace through these mediums in the digital age. Angry Gamers aims to contribute to the next page of a dialogue within the digital world regarding our concept of reality. Emotional absorption into “virtual” worlds calls into question what the meaning of “virtual” actually is. Code, binary and pixels are not real in the same way the senses are real. Our senses can offer us corporal tangibility.

This intrinsic need for connectivity presents itself in a more primal way in “Official Grind”, where young men from all over the United States collectively perform exceedingly sexual choreographed routines for the viewing pleasure of their (highly presumed) female counterpart. The biological display of desire in the form of dance invites the distant viewer, who is obviously not always female, to look anonymously, free of the demand for accountability and their own ownership of sexuality.

is collection of video bloggers, who directly ask for feedback with regards to their post’s subject. Not only is this three-word request evidence of the awareness of the video’s home on the web, but the occasional hand motion downward suggests an astute awareness of the YouTube interface, from which the source video’s are all appropriated. This awareness blurs the faint line between exemplified physical detachment (being “inside” of YouTube), and the need for connectivity intrinsic to all humans.
