Jane Frances Dunlop
(tfw) spin measure cut
Jane Frances Dunlop is an artist and writer whose work addresses emotion and performances of relation on the internet. In (tfw) spin measure cut, Dunlop uses the gestures of the Moirai to structure a series of triptychs exploring the intersections of contemporary technologies and emotions. The Moirai, in Greek mythology, spin the thread of life, measure its length and cut it. These gestures – related labours that perform and define living – frame an approach to the intersections of the functional, material and emotional terms of contemporary networked life. (tfw) spin measure cut examines how intimacy unravels in contexts of digital ubiquity.
