In In My Bedroom, I perform a seductively choreographed dance wearing a chroma‚Äźblue full body suit in front of a green screen which has been replaced with an HD video of a penguin TV special as an invocation of the media experience circumscribing the Gezi Park protest of May 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey. I emphasize an aesthetics of replacement to critique the uncritical exchange of bodies, narratives, and images that were infamously mocked during the viral swarm of social media that covered the situation. I reimagine the event by humorously foregrounding the economies of attention and distraction that frame such charged and consumable images.
