This is the first thirty minutes of Ann Hirsch performance. She lived the life of a youtube “camwhore” (her words) for a significant amount of time, and I think this is the culmination of that work as a performance for a group of people in a small space Some of the videos she is sent are heartbreaking; the chats linger. The laughter in the audience makes me ashamed to be a human and destroys me.
I’m sorry I’m not writing about this well, but I’m doing this early Thursday morning. Time travel.
You can find Ann Hirsch on twitter. You can see more of her art here. You can listen to her on one of my favorite podcasts here.
