We are the astronaut. Our spacesuits, devices and services.
Technology keeps us connected but separate.
This series uses a free smartphone app (eKo Art). When viewed through the phone, the collage shows 3D animating spheres and “clickbait” (absurd headlines), which is taken from the web in real time.
The virtual layer of the art is organic; because it’s connected to a live feed, it changes along with the outside world.
Clickbait must be one of the most preposterous distractions in human history. To have the gross (“12 U.S. Presidents, in order of hotness!” , “Which Pizza topping is your personality?”, “This Gorilla Is So Handsome, Women Are Flocking To The Zoo To See Him”,) thrown at us over the visually seductive is a fundamental part of our current relationship with the internet, social media, and technology.
