Maya Man – How to use a computer

Maya Man

Artist, Programmer and Choreographer

From The Conference August 29, 2022

“My entire life my sense of self has been mediated by a computer screen.”

Growing up, Maya Man has always been fascinated with the presentation of self and the meaning of true authenticity in different contexts. Her sense of self has always been mediated by a computer screen, leading her to experiment with the possibilities this presented but also feel that everything she was doing was some form of performance for a third person audience. In her recent work, she has subverted the tone of voice of Seventeen magazine covers and motivational Instagram posts to explore notions of performance, identity, and our presentation of self in the 21st century.
