An ode to the Dadaists and Bauhausian artists of the 20th century, “The Dadabyte Theater” explores the technologized body within the present Fourth Industrial Revolution. Utilizing in-camera autoportraiture, I reflect on the complexity of contemporary cyborg configurations and attempt to find balanced modes of being in a hyper-connected, mechanical society dominated by technology. Parts of my body recede into the imagined dark spaces of history and the Internet, as other parts are being shaped and forced to conform to expectations of femaleness within regimented societal structures. Autonomous machines of war, labor, pleasure, care, companionship and other computational systems of control and comfort are being produced within this dizzying systemic capitalist merry-go-round. By using products of industry, I aim to illustrate the constraints, contradictions, and complexities of our technological entanglement and chose to explore my own agency and autonomy through this work.
