The dollhouse had its moment at ISEA 2020, at the panel ‘Queering Infrastructure.’
The zine is a diverse collection of voices organized in three types of contributions: quickfire interviews (short reactions to big questions), double interviews (conversational long reads), and artworks (projects addressing discussed subjects visually).
MoneyLab # 7 was wonderful for me (I will write about it at some point). My thanks to Silvio Lorusso for his comments on my presentation and that of Lana Swartz.
If you’re curious, the video of the panel is here.
update: this article explains my research better that I would ever do. Thank you Natalia!
I will be presenting on money (or tokens, actually) at the MoneyLab conference [Amsterdam/November/14].
I’m totally delighted that this small but not so shy project will have a section in the upcoming Selfie book edited by the great Selfie Conference. More to come!
Maintenance Pornography was featured in ‘Maintenance and Care’, great article by the great Shannon Mattern > Places Journal. Many thanks!
Exciting news for 2018:
I received a grant from Hexagram, under the brand new category ‘performative research’. This will involve the observation and performative interpretation (in the dollhouse, of course) of the work of that happens at Chaturbate, and I will do this in a residency at the Institute of Network Cultures, in Amsterdam. In preparation for this, I started building different sets for the dollhouse, with the fantastic help of Marian Salamovich, a great artist that happens to be my mother. Fantastic in so many levels.
The dollhouse/miniature theatre was built by Ronnie Araya, talented architect and friend.
More to come!
