desktop kitsch


what are the personal artifacts which surround us as we sit engaged with our computers? what do you have lurking around your computer desktop in addition to hardware and peripheries? what objects personalize your computer space?


the following documentation offers the beginning for a future archaelogical database describing our desktop idiosyncrasies. Working with a web cam and live video exchange, i queried chat room participants to show at their camera lens an object which personalize their computer area. my initial investigation encompassed three ivisit chat times over the period of several days.


the kitsch prototype credits and references as inspiriation the work of professor george legrady and his pockets full of memories presented at the centre georges pompidou in paris.
