Artist Statement:


    Not being paid for endless project revisions is an international affliction. “Loading Animated Version” documents the email correspondence between an American office specializing in streaming media and the design studio they hired in Hungary. To illustrate the contrast of management and labor, screen captures of American Flash animations are juxtaposed with found footage scenes of Eastern Europe typically presented on American television. This satirical dramatization of the exchange across the ether reveals the vast inequality between bottom-line managers and their dispensable labor force. “Loading Animated Version” demonstrates that dot-corns could potentially be no different from infamous manufacturing companies and their unethical disregard of good labor practice.
