Touch To Play
Touch To Play is a screen recording in which I dance along to Selena Gomez's music video for "Good For You". I place myself next to the video, recording on my webcam, trying to emulate the style of the video in my bedroom. The webcam performance enters the world of girls dancing for their webcams on websites like YouTube, joining the mass of figures moving across their rooms for their computer's camera. Anonymous hands enter the screen clicking, zooming in and touching the surface, alluding to outside control and input from online viewers, most of who we cannot predict or conceptualize, but attempt to anyway as we hit record, watching ourselves being watched before we even upload.
