mood: quixotic was designed and coded for Welcome to my Homepage's digital residency program. for the month of April 2016, visitors to the site were allowed to peek into the world of Eddie, a teenage boy stalked via his Livejournal and hacked webcam by a female classmate. this subversion of the male gaze is intended to be both an unsettling reminder and nostalgic longing for an earlier time when the internet felt more innocent and bad behavior lacked a vocabulary.
throughout the month, objects moved and changed in the webcam view of the bedroom, and Eddie's journal revealed increasingly creepy interactions with his secret admirer.
an interactive archive of the project is available here.
