Screen Walk with Maya Man
In Screen Walks, a series of live-streamed explorations of digital spaces, selected artists and researchers investigate artistic strategies taking place online. The project gives an insight into practices using the screen as a medium. From re-contextualising pictures found on online marketplaces and uncovering data brokers’ invisible circulation of images to analysing in-game photography and the social, political and economic implications of games – Screen Walks examines various approaches, offers a behind-the-scenes look at artists’ work and uncovers new, current and forgotten digital spaces. Screen Walks is a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery in London and Fotomuseum Winterthur.
Artist Maya Man is focused on contemporary identity culture on the internet and is the creator of the browser extension Glance Back and the Art Blocks curated collection FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT. Her websites, generative series and installations examine dominant narratives around femininity, authenticity and the performance of self online. Man holds BA degrees in Computer Science and Media Studies from Pomona College and an MFA in Media Art from UCLA. Her work has been exhibited internationally at bitforms gallery, SOOT, Vellum LA, Power Station of Art and Feral File and has been featured in Art in America, Forbes, Zora Zine, Dirt, Various Artists and more.
