Self Portrait as Tech Support, 2023
Foam Mousepad, artist's multiple edition of 50
11 x 9 inches
Self Portrait as Tech Support is an artist's multiple where a webcam photograph is reproduced on a series of editioned foam mousepads that are designed to help prevent carpel-tunnel syndrome and wrist pain. The work appropriates a digital vernacular culture of anime character’s bodies appearing on similar ergonomic mouse pads, replacing it with a low resolution image of the artist in her studio, as her practice attempts to investigate the interface through the lens of computer pain.
