Andra8 is a simulacral subaltern working a variety of online jobs: as a virtual assistant, a data cleanser, a content creator, an emoji artist, and a life coach. Andra8 will be on “the main screen” with very few client parameters speculating on the politics of digital labor, the role of women and minorities in today’s art economy, and the underlying systems of algorithmic control, topics she has not been invited to speak about in the past.

The Lecture/Performance is an extension of Nguyen’s new work my favorite software is being here which centers on Andra8’s isolated existence and labor in a photogenic and all-surveilled virtual void. It will be followed by a short talk with Nguyen and the technical director and cinematographer of Nguyen’s Andra8 video, Jonathan Beilin who created the real-time animation set up for the Lecture/Performance.
