#WORKBITCH – a gif a day

This body of work – a series of 14 GIFs (Graphical Interchange format) was developed during the Floating reverie Residency //2Weeks January.

This project is called WORKBITCH and is based on an initial project which I began called Daily Data. For this project I tracked and monitored my daily actions and activities over a set period of time. The aim of the project was an ironic way of legitimising my daily actions and to ‘prove’ to myself how productive I was really being. It was a laborious and deliberately boring task which justified my actions, or lack thereof, as an artist. I looked specifically at my routine, my journeys, my activities, what they resulted in and where I went – all of which are no more interesting from the next person.

For this project I would like to take two weeks of my data and transform each day into a GiF – producing a gif a day. The data will cover 2 weeks from 2 October 2013 – 16 October 2013. My anxiety, need, desire to produce was highlighted during this project and subsequently Britney Spears’s song “Work Bitch” was released. This title is hilariously appropriate for both my own experience of the project as well as a general societal desire to achieve, maintain a certain lifestyle and be successful.

Each Gif will be titled according to the corresponding date eg. WorkBitch02102013.

Below are some examples of a few GIFs. They are for sale – if you would like to purchase one or view the contract – please send me an email whitaker.carly@gmail.com.
