This is a series of paintings executed  in front of the computer during  skype-video-conversations with the artist’s friends and family sitting for him as models.

The model sits for the entire duration of the painting – usually between 3 and 5 hours.
During the sitting the connection speed may vary, pixelating distortions come and go and are integrated into the resulting work just as are changes in the light or in the expression of the sitter.
