How is productivity, idleness, and attention measured and quantified across the dispensable resource of contemporary digital capital? I, with Arnika, insert low-resolution provocations as ‘noise’ amidst a vortex of signals generated for a company’s CCTV monitoring system. The resulting composition is a choreography of quiet thoughts exteriorised and staged for the surveillance archive, and left for the system to decode and reassemble.
Medium: 65 low-resolution photography prints on sun board
