Keyboard Warrior (2015) is an online-performance where ellen.gif refrains from disconnecting on Omegle, an online interface that allows strangers to interact via video and text. ellen.gif is reliving her childhood experiences of using Omegle without supervision.

 

ellen.gif's soldier costume was chosen to pose as a protective layer, which becomes sexualized by her conversational partners. Keyboard Warrior explores consent, sexuality, privacy and human interactions, however fleeting.

Keyboard Warrior was performed live at The Cube, Oxford Art Factory, Australia.
