WATCH ME (22-2-2016 12-03-24) by Ry David Bradley is based on a screenshot sourced from the live-streaming app Periscope, which was then reworked and dye-transferred onto synthetic suede. The artist leaves the surface of the “digital painting” unfixed so that the viewer can alter the piece, subverting traditional notions of unique authorship. Bradley, author of the widely read PAINTED,ETC. blog, writes that Periscope is known for attracting individuals who are “addicted to the thrill of being seen, desperate for more followers, more audience, more comments, and more likes.”
