Description

The body of work references instructional tutorials and Internet DIY culture. Through her work, Cecilia Mezulic is remixing arbitrary rules and random results, playing with absurd logics, cause and effect relationships and concepts of materiality and immateriality in the process of signification of how-to instructions. By performing absurd systems of rules, Mezulic is repurposing the language of instructional videos to comment on the role of creativity and production in contemporary culture.
