Petra Cortright

Petra Cortright

Work from Male Female Child.

There is a rather informative interview here. Her ANIM8D GIF work is also interesting, but I could not practically replicate the context. Check them out and you will understand.

“Her reference points (cats, dogs, psychedelia, youtube, geocities, and so on) are all things very near to our hearts, but there remains something blissfully and recklessly confusing about Petra Cortright’s work. The ways in which Cortright tosses her ideas against the backdrop of video compression, cheap image software effects, and the general soup of internet culture make us want to scratch our heads with one hand and high-five her with the other. In a crowded market of “new media” artists working coldly with bright colors and animated gifs, Cortright brings something far more authentically weird, human, and funny to the table” – Whose Fault is That
