relax|girl|cam #1 rifle

Jessyca R. Hauser, 2017, 8 min
relax|girlcam #1 rifle departs from Jessyca R. Hauser’s previous work, using the webcam as medium that sits peripherally in relation to contemporary modes of distribution/documentation of the self. From a placid generic ocean scene, rises a saturation of archival imagery and a self-composed soundtrack. Both an immediate collapse and implosion of the image, the work proposes dissolutions of the I. Positioning trauma as agency and window onto the redundancy of narrative in a flattening of the mind, the track’s repetition of the you, me, noone hits with a bass reminiscent of a Xanax sedated rifle. Mediating an absurd articulation on actually functioning (in)sanity, the screen, the body and the state; and I wanna shoot myself, and I wanna shoot the babies.
