Multi media artist Ginger Anyhow has created several different projects that play with the way we as a culture have emotionally normalized the technology in our life. She accomplishes this by refining common, almost organic interactions with technology to their simplest forms. One of Anyhow’s more compelling projects tells the story of a love/hate relationship entirely through text messages which have been embroiderred on fabric.
My favorite of her projects though is You Fell Asleep Watching a DVD. It eerily and accurately recreates the experience of (duh) waking up after having fallen asleep watching a DVD. We have all had this groggy late night experience.
It is disorienting. It is kind of gross. It is definitely a little depressing.
