Artist Statement:

One Unit of a Slap is for sale and live on eBay at:
Since 2003 I have been working on a series of art projects that are internet-based and deal with issues of labor, exploitation, and capitalistic frameworks for commodification and self-commodification. My interest is focused on the hierarchical relationship between the haves and the have-nots in order to explore power dynamics by altering and challenging established perceptions. My most recent work, The Slap, is an online re-staging of a performance first presented as part of the Soma installation at Supermarket 2015 in Stockholm. The artwork dithers between abuse, exploitation, and absurdity, creating aesthetic experiences in which the viewer, the participant, and the artist are simultaneously victims and perpetrators.
