'You Should Be In MOMA, But You'll End Up In The Dovecot', 2020. Acrylic and Shetland Wool on Canvas. 260 x 190 cm

BROADCAST documents a durational performance piece disseminated over the Shetland Webcam network in July 2020. The work uses digital communication and interference to explore perceptions of place, accessibility of the art world and the artists identity as an islander. For each performance, I selected a wearable painting, travelled to a webcam site and interrupted the video stream. https://www.shetlandwebcams.com

She was back where she belonged. Existing only in the screens. Settled into a sublime landscape, tucked inside a virtual world. No more physical touch, just digital gestures. She will wrap herself in her work, to feel it against her body, to feel protected. To feel it against her body, she will wrap herself in her work. Just digital gestures, no physical touch. Tucked inside a virtual world, settled into a sublime landscape. Existing only in the screens. She was back where she belonged.
