Screen Walk with Molly Soda

In her Screen Walk, Molly Soda will create a real-time, collaborative Desktop Dump performance. She will walk the viewers through the files on her desktop, while organising and uploading them to her Desktop Dump Archive. The artist will also encourage participants to submit files from their own desktops, creating a collaborative visual collage and thus reflecting on notions of intimacy within networked culture.

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.

Molly Soda is an artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Nearly all her work takes place online, as she uses a variety of social media platforms to host her work, allowing it to evolve and interact with the platforms themselves. Soda makes videos, installations and web-based, interactive works that touch on concepts such as performing the self, memory, aspiration and consumer culture.
