#Screenshots is a group on Facebook is in whom the numerous artists are connected and share screenshots take snuff in the air on the Internet. #Screenshots is more exactly an invisible secret group for the most part of the Internet users is more exactly a public, accessible to everyone. Erica Lapadat-Janzen published in 2012 an experimental book in 10 copies with images extracted from this community. The intention of the artist is to dematerialize the group Facebook in artistic object to illustrate the almost photographic practice of the screen shot. We find the esthetics low-def (low definition) there and pixelized which characterizes these images.

Erica’s work and mediums are in a constant state of flux, although she is currently focused on net art, digital collage, and video work. She focuses on topics ranging from social media as performance to sexuality in online communities. Much of her work could be considered humorous although if you ask she will say “I am NOT funny.” As the self proclaimed founder of Froth wave Feminism, she plays with genderfuck, bodily humour, and hypersexual glitching. She is currently working on being more tangible and creating a line of appeal and objects called « Skin Products. »
