Our mission was to do the impossible: to develop a chat solution that could drive 3x more chat conversions.To us, this meant thinking about live chat more than just messaging.Which pieces in this show do you feel are most representative of your style, and why?In terms of a purely formal rather than conceptual ‘style’, one of the things I have thought important in making the work is a sense of stylistic or formal aesthetic freedom.Once you get here your life changes and your sex energy seethes!
The majority of people who are nude are looking for sexual gratification.
The ability to be anonymous I suppose must enable this, though I still find it compelling in the context of the rest of the internet, which seems to be geared towards selling things/ideas/people in one form or another.
A few times I have watched what I thought was a person but in fact turned out to be a person playing a video of someone else, whilst they watched me interacting with their avatar.
Whilst the laptop is connected to the chat room, I start flicking through live feeds of people online, clicking next until I find an image that I want to paint.
Depending on what the person in the image is doing, or if I can even see a person, I either begin painting without engaging in conversation, or I begin a conversation and then start to paint, perhaps asking them if they mind me painting them. Some interactions are slow, if for example I am with a person whose internet connection is poor, or if my ‘partner’ is using a translation tool or not speaking at all but using hand gestures.
