A compelling mix of attraction and repulsion, Mainsqueeze is entirely composed of footage found online, surfing the deep web.
Surfing the deep web, Rafman observes, collects and orders. He gravitates towards communities like 4chan because he sees in them a compelling mix of attraction and repulsion, an ambivalence reflected in the current cultural moment. Mainsqueeze is entirely composed of online footage. The voice-over text is a combination of quotes from literature, Tumblr, and comments on various message boards. The video expresses a moral condition or atmosphere without making a moral judgment.
