Petra Cortright’s video marled_clay_cheese features a group of Windows taskbar strippers that the artist sourced from VirtuaGirl, software that’s been available since the 90s and offers thousands of freely downloadable virtual dancers. In Cortright’s video, the girls are removed from their original context, and placed in front of a green screen to perform in a repetitive loop.
