Frances Stark




Two video installations by American artist and writer Frances Stark for Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love.

Exploring how Internet technologies have transformed interpersonal communication, Stark’s My Best Thing (2011), a feature-length computer-animated video, chronicles far-ranging conversations between two nearly naked digital avatars, representing the artist and a couple of strangers she met in an online chat forum.

Mozart’s sumptuous opera Don Giovanni provides the soundtrack for Osservate (2012), in which Stark projects snippets of written conversations with nine different online partners.
