comes from good stock is a durational process-as-performance for live performer, Mac Photobooth, Adobe Photoshop, and printer. Stock images that come in newly purchase picture frames are removed from their frames and scanned into the computer. The artist takes a picture of herself and proceeds to insert herself into the stock photo. She then prints the new photo and places it back into the frame. Over time, a wall of these fake memories is created.
comes from good stock is a piece on family, friends, lonliness, and the hyperreal.
Performed in Berlin, Germany, during the Month of Performance Art, Berlin (MPA-B), May 2014.
