Artworks in this room:

No More Metaphors

An exploration of literality and lack-of-therein in the digital realm

No More Metaphors

Doggy Dog World

Marissa Sean Cruz

A video installation that considers cuteness and its relationship to cultural capital, social agency and dominance. Upon entering the room, a duo of collared barking monitors on leashes standoff. Subsequently behind the pair of tethered screens, a wall-projection of my skin and a dogs skin are liquefied together.

PLAY(ing) IN MY PEN(ding doom)

Marissa Sean Cruz

In an evocative collision of installation, performance and computer-generated animations, I critique the creation of Boston Dynamic’s animatronic dog robot by cosplaying as an animatronic pink polka-dotted puppy toy. Enclosed in a puppy play pen and sitting on top of a bed of dog food, an iPad plays the three-minute video.

Axis of Evil

Georgica Pettus

Axis of Evil is a close examination of the year 2006. With Pluto’s demotion and pseudo-death came the death of any notion of objective, scientific truth. It wasn’t long before other so-called truths began to falter. The Fable, once considered a universal moral compass, stopped pointing north. In the wake of this great loss, and with 13 years of hindsight, I have compiled a selection of post-Plutonian Fables. There is no such thing as reward or repentance, no triumph of Good over Evil

Hacker Concerto or she’s a lying ass hoe in the age of information (it was you who hacked me on instagram)

Georgica Pettus

Hacker Concerto is an exploration of the lack of self on online platforms. Having one's self hijacked by a robot and having it contact people in our follow list reveals the fragility of selfhood in the information age. This hack is physically embodied in this dance performance layered atop the fraudulent messages sent to Georgica's followers, me included.
