For the NETWORK ERROR exhibition, I created a squad of 3D-printed 'selfies' and used them to stage tiny protests in public spaces, presenting the documentation as research in the field. Works include a series of photographs, an interactive video game, and a live stream of the figurines installed in the gallery’s interior. Visitors are asked to question the scale of their political fear in contrast to their physical space. How big is your fear? How big are you? The artwork deals with issues of identity and collaboration, how the body is represented and replicated, and explores the relationship between performance and protest. Security and insecurity become the personal and political poles of the landscape, concerned with state patrols while planning for revolution.
