Turbulence Commission: "Condition:Used" by Anna Pinkas
"Condition:Used" gathers bits and pieces of intimate spaces found online to create domestic scenes made out of paper. The pieces of furniture comprising these uncanny miniatures are replicas of items for sale on eBay: The listings’ images were transformed into printable/foldable paper templates, assembled to form intricate scenes, photographed, and displayed on the "Condition:Used" website. The visitors can click on each element in the dioramas to get a detailed view and a screenshot of its original eBay page. They are also invited to download and print any of the templates to create their own "paper doll house."
"Condition:Used" is a 2014 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.
Anna Pinkas is a Swiss-born artist living in Brooklyn, NY. She holds a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and received her Master's degree from New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program. She uses a variety of media (from traditional animation, to web-based projects and interactive installations) to explore the act of collecting and what it can reveal about the mundane. She teaches Media Arts and Technology at BMCC/CUNY.
