Prosumer and Surfer (with head) are internet connected figurative sculptures. Made of steel and outfitted with digital electronics and custom software, these casually constructed amphibious “beings” occupy the booth as a tableau, continuously creating fleeting and generative screen-based content through various interactions, with the internet, each other, and the other sculptural and screen-based works in the booth. Prosumer perpetually generates Instagram images of abstract paintings, while Surfer (with head) literally trolls the internet at random on a tablet.
