TURNER PRIZE WINNERS (NOT NOT THE THE TURNER PRIZE)

"VIEW AS"

My upcoming NOT NOT THE TURNER PRIZE (TURNER PRIZE WINNERS) exhibition in London came out of a conversation with curator Jürgen Dehm that started with the question of what kind of artist I actually was. Was I a painter? A Digital Artist? Resisting any one box while fitting comfortably in many, my practice manifests itself in many mediums simultaneously.  “View As” is a software feature popularized by Facebook that allows a user to see what a given webpage (profile etc.) looks like to “people-who-aren’t-you.” Enjoying the subjectivity within this term, I’ve adopted it to share how my work can be viewed in a variety of mediums. What kind of artist? The answer is “yes” and is “both.”  Far fewer things are mutually exclusive than we often see them. We need our boxes and we need our ways out of them too. During the course of September, I'll be updating this page with the different manifestations and mediums

This website is a journey through my process where every medium serves a different role in achieving her search engine manipulation of “Turner Prize Winners.”  The viewer is presented with works that are both ends and means, products and process. With my paintings as inputs and the hacked search results as outputs the videos, text, and installations get their medium specificity from the different ways the internet makes use of user-generated content such as YouTube videos, tweets, and product reviews.
