Sitting Fairly Still
Sitting Fairly Still is a series in which a program tracks my movement as I sit for an indeterminant amount of time. My subtle twitches and the undulation of my breath are my paint brushes. This work shares a line of thought with Jenny Odell’s book How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy. From which I learned the radical idea that doing nothing can be used as an antidote to negative effects capitalism and patriarchy have on a person. This series is on-going and continues to help me through dark periods during Trump's presidency.
This series is featured in "It's Nice Out Here", an online art pavilion part of The Wrong Digital Art Biennale. Pavilion will be online until March 1, 2020.
