  •  In Sharing Lazy Gains the artist's body is multiplied exponentially in an infinite field of carpet as a virtual camera endlessly spirals above. The dialogue in the video uses appropriated text from fictional cyborgs, over-sharers, spammers, phishers, robots, trolls, advertisers, musicians, philosophers, poets, and rappers as a way to interrogate the self. This melange emanates from the artist's body perpetually caught in the exposed position of dress/undress. Technology today conflates public and private forms of expression as our bodies and minds are always on display. The speed of digital recognition/capture has matched our own output so well as to create an echo chamber of self-reflexive narcissism.
