LURKING

Lurking comprises screenshots from live video chat rooms paired as fictitious diptychs. These works are simulations of surreptitious interactions. They are a look into private experience and its quiet power in our lives.

I am interested in the ways that desires and emotions manifest as events. My concern is not whether these interactions are positive or appropriate, but simply that desire has power and necessitates actualization. The context of these images represent a site where actualization is possible—often bringing people of differing demographics, and with disparate or conflicting motivations, together.
