Title Jonathan Harris’s I Love Your Work: Procedurality and Weak Narrative
Author Engberg, Maria
Date 2016
English abstract
The article reviews the work of American programmer and artist Jonathan Harris, who is an example of contemporary born-digital interactive storytelling. His work centers around an aesthetics of procedurality that is invoked by the database structures that his work uses. In a series of digital photography and film media projects, for instance The Whale Hunt (2007), Today (2010), and most recently Network Effect (2015) Harris combines large sets of photographs, video clips and text snippets into composite works. Harris’s 2013 project I Love Your Work has thus far received the most attention. Described as an “interactive documentary” it comprises 2, 202 ten-second video clips that Harris filmed while following nine different women as they went about their everyday life.
