OneSmallStep: a MySpace LuvStory.
2006. Web-based Installation.
We are not ourselves. We cut and paste as we are cut and pasted. We are the remix of images and sounds that never existed outside of this mediated dream. And we are happy to exist this way.
OneSmallStep: a MySpace LuvStory is an unfolding automated jam – a conscious sampling and randomized regurgitation of MySpace.com media archeology wherein desire, fantasy and fetish form a composted feast for the withered and lonely senses in an eternally habitual loop of voyeuristic consumption, spectacular regurgitation, virtual intimacy and identity production/consumption.
With each launch, OneSmallStep runs continuously while randomly remixing content form from a database that is periodically updated. OneSmallStep is a conceptually interactive work, and also, a non-clickable work that is ideal for installation and performance contexts.

OneSmallStep: a MySpace LuvStory is a project developed for Concept Trucking, an exhibition venue maintained by LeisureArts that uses MySpace as its platform. It hosts work that critiques, mimics, or otherwise utilizes the structural logic of social networking sites and other Web 2.0 phenomena.
