Maintenance Pornography is a work in progress that explores a domestic side of the post-digital economy, or the commodification of everyday life that happens in amateur sexcams. I am looking for that turning point when unpaid domestic work becomes labor, in that mixture of precarity and excess that this new economy unveils.
The project has two parts: a broadcasted performance in a miniature theater and an interactive installation, also in miniature. Updates of the project will appear on this page.
The building of this research device was possible by the Research-Creation grant I received from Hexagram. This project is part of my PhD investigation which is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
