'Conversational Traces', 2008-2011, 2012

Digital prints from screenshot, Dimensions Variable

Contact Regarding Availability

I have been using Skype since 2008 and, just as I take photos in the real world, I have also been gathering screenshots of conversations I've had on Skype. Haircuts change, locations switch, children grow. I was interested in making an object of something so ephemeral.

In the first edition of this series, the screenshots were printed to exactly the same dimensions as my comptuer screen, and each piece titled according to the places I and whoever I was talking to, was in. Plus the date.

For a new exhibition of this work taking place at WIP Konsthall in Sweden this December, they will be printed in larger format and available to take away as posters.
