portfolio > Slippage: Fragility of Connection, 2010 (19 images)

In the age of Twitter, social networks, YouTube, surveillance and text messaging, we are constantly transmitting, receiving and exchanging our status at great distance with speed. We are readily conditioned to view, and be viewed by, thousands of anonymous others. We have several hundred “faces” of so-called friends on our desktop.

“A Slippage–Fragility of Connection” is a mixed-media installation in which I explored the notion of communication-what is being communicated and what slips away. The installation includes: a telephone booth; a sound piece that I collected by calling wrong numbers and how people responded; a surveillance camera that monitors outside; Rolodex; Google translations; and paint-by-number painting.
