Embed 1 and 2 (2016)

Like "Picture in Picture", these are snapshots of a laptop playing a film. It is an embed of one medium in another, and has the same ambiguity, as I don't know what the film (or broadcast was). It is a kind of Droste Effect, although the images are different. Now that people use their phones as a way of setting reminders (taking a picture to remind oneself to do something in the near future), photos have different intentions, but could become art in the future, once the intentions have faded away.
