Breaking out of the digital space.
I am a digital artist from Chicago, IL. I work heavily in gifs and digital works and love things that twinkle and glow.
This piece pertains to the stress of being online and living online all day open to everyone’s screens. Where is the privacy there? Why does everyone need to know who’s dating who, what we shopped for, or what we venmo’d our buddy last night? Signing up for a new service? Just more and more situations where we are asked to input our personal info just to watch a video or get make up every month in the mail. Sometimes I avoid my phone because it’s become more and more stressful to be present online. Being an artist, I am filled with the pressure to be active online and be watched. What is she up to? What is she going to do next?
