Wire Bath is a fetish video in which the artist enacts her fantasy of being in a bathtub full of ethernet cords. The cords entwine her body and peek out of the water like tentacles from the ocean.
As more and more of our technologies become wireless, the artist re-connects with the physical cables. The tub becomes a miniature model of cyberspace and the artist relaxes in this cybertub and tenderly takes care of the cables.
The work was part of the artist’s solo exhibition Speculative Fetish, Transfer Gallery, Brooklyn, 2017/18
Activatar’s August exhibition (about the show) is curated by Tina Sauerlaender.
