Working on My Core, 2019

I was working on a core curriculum, during which I captured all my movements in front of my computer and turned it into an animated routine performed by my avatar. I was both physical and digital at the same time, which made it doubly clear how my life sitting and typing away in front of a monitor was depressing. To make up for this, I start to stand, stretch, and exercise in front of my desk to work on my core. The digital me is also getting buffer. In an ever increasingly digital age, our bodies and avatars, as a digital "Rückenfigur" can be used to design and work through various subject positions—perspective, first-person shooter (FPS), machine vision, etc. —and various degrees of the physical and digital.
