ar+ show

Over the course of 2016, while corporate media turned their attention to one ridiculous boob, I focused the camera on another; ar+ show is a glitch art performance made possible my exploiting a “flaw” in Snapchat’s face detection algorithm wherein it recognizes my breast as a face.

Like previous works, ar+ show refuses the hegemonic gaze, the assumption that feminized bodies exist primarily to be consumed as passive sexual objects. I control my image and the narrative around my body. I look back. I poke fun. I am vain and vulnerable and carefree. This isn’t for you, but you are invited to witness.
