“I was struck by Vito Acconci’s Undertone video art piece for many reasons, the main point being that I wondered how this performance would be received if Mr Acconci had performed it in the age of the “me too” movement. This work could speak to the idea of two people who are lost in a world of fantastical master, muse dynamic, all performed within the technological realm.”


The artist wishes to thank Fabian Forban, whom she has collaborated with on various projects involving new media.
