Wil Aballe Art Projects

It took the opening of longtime ex-Vancouverite Mark Soo's latest to get me out of my viral spiral and (finally!) down to Wil Aballe Art Projects. Although I could appreciate Mark's play of (camera) line, (digital) colour and (transposed) form, I wish I could say the same of Jon Rafman's Mainsqueeze (2014), a Monde Cane-meets-VICE magazine triumph-of-the-internet in an '80s video passe-partout. I mean, had I never been online before, maybe, but who is that person who has never been online before, and how soon before that person will be said to have never existed?
