Artist Ed Atkins explains his piece NO-ONE IS MORE “WORK” THAN ME that was shown earlier this year at Fondation Beyeler for their 14 Rooms exhibition. Like many of his pieces, the character in the digitally fabricated video is not only constructed from 3D modeling software, but also is animated to talk about work itself, bringing attention to Atkins’ process of programming the avatar character. Atkins also added a performative aspect to the piece, having a hooded person without a face sit next to the floating avatar head, as representative of flesh and blood. Together, the headless body and digital avatar head do not make a whole, echoing Atkins’ consistent commentary on the imperfection of digital perceptions of self. View the artist's page.
