In Good Days & Bad Days on the Internet, Rachel Stuckey dissects the emotional pull of technology using video, site-specific projection, and custom software. Stuckey takes inspiration from 1980s computer ephemera, passionate YouTubers, and unusual content found on the deep web. Thematically, the exhibition addresses the ways we engage with technology, including the seduction of a glossy phone and the heartache of a shattered screen, therapeutic use of "oddly satisfying" videos, dependency, fears of having personal data compromised, and obsessive repetition through memes. The work shifts tonally from parody to dark abstraction, moving from superficial web use to deep, uncharted territory.
