Jane Topping / Dirty Screen Cactus / C-type print
40 x 70 cm
Topping's work examines the ever-developing relationship between your body and your screen.
A heady combination of physical closeness, shining image, endless variety, availability and manipulation breeds a familiarity and intimacy between the viewer, the screen and the moving image.
Viewers are closer to their object of desire than ever, and Topping seeks to test if this closeness amplifies or frustrates feelings of intimacy and ownership. The net and the screen are together creating a new form of desire, of love, which has yet to be clearly defined, it is this that the artist seeks to understand.
