Yosemite (2021) is a “netscape” that explores cyber-realities and their relation to real-world issues. deBoisblanc highlights our obsession with idyllic nature imagery as desktop backgrounds, despite the current environmental catastrophe of climate change. Through her work, deBoisblanc seeks to “subvert digital escape by injecting anthropogenic detritus into online spaces” while exposing “modes of extraction endemic to cyberspace (and late-stage capitalism more broadly) so that we might arrive at a more responsible visual language for the web” (deBoisblanc).
