Artist Statement:


    Don’t Know Where To Point employs a science fiction attitude and a conspiratorial logic in relation to a case of vertigo I experienced. In the video, vertigo serves as a metonym for the conundrum of processing information in the contemporary world. It elucidates our participation in the pathologizing of our own behavior. We cede our most intimate data to WebMD and other websites/apps without thought to how this affects our own conceptions of the limits of our being. My goal is to connect the personal neurosis of online diagnosis with a wider process of how people make meaning in the world with constant technological input and output. We are in constant feedback loops with everything around us. We are hypersensitive to data.
