Petra Cortright

cats spirt spsit spit, 2008

PETRA CORTRIGHT is, what we can called, a net artist. Her work, consisting in digital images and videos, is quite conceptual but deeply visual. Cheap images, software effects, and the general soup of internet culture are the raw material for her creation.

I try to be better at this but I am a really impatient person. Gifs and webcams are so fast, low file size, load fast, they are almost scraps. I like not having the commitment of working with hi def vid/images. It just sucks how serious you have to be, it requires too much thinking. Gifs are lil treasures of the internet, its so great when you stumble onto a huge unknown index that you hadn’t seen before”.

PETRA CORTRIGHT lives in Santa Barbara (California).
