|i'm a victim of this painting|
Taking after Pipilotti Rist's work, I'm a Victim of this Song, Nat King Cole's well-known track, Mona Lisa, is recited by a free text-to-speech app. Still not perfected in 2016, the masculine voice delivers the words in a mechanical glitchy way, converting the lyrics in pick-up lines. Far from the original dreamy song, the sound becomes harassing and annoying.
To emphasize more on the feminine mystery, depicted usually by the male gaze, I'm a victim of this painting attaches my own manipulated image on the famous painting, covering the 'mystic smile' with my own erased and multiplied face.
**I'm a victim of this painting was created on the NewHive platform under a slightly different visual form, now lost. The .gif without audio was used also on my twitter project, @le_tempsperdu
