(HOHUM...) THIS IS GONNA BE A LOOONG GAME
Multi-channel video installation, color, sound, 60min, 2015
14 min excerpt of 60 min installation.
A multi-channel video installation that examines the misogynistic gameplay of Cover Girl Strip Poker, a 1991 MS-DOS computer game, (Hohum)...it's gonna be a looong game deconstructs the crude embodiments of male desire which integrates the objectification of the female body with disfiguring early computerized graphics and interactivity. Intended to be installed flatly into the surface of a poker table, the viewers--distinctively that and not players--can sit and look down individually and privately at the small screens, as if at their own intangible hands of poker, or at a peep show mutoscope. Around the table are the separated elements, hands disconnected from their bets and female representations separated from their objectifications, reclaiming the history of female depiction from its function as male entertainment.
