Michael Max McLeod presents a trilogy of works exploring how technology mediates desire between men. CAM 2 CAM, Casual Encounters and Arcadia use the electronic screen as a point of departure. In CAM 2 CAM, the surface of the screen is a field upon which individuals project their physical presence. In Casual Encounters, McLeod passes through the screen into the lives of the men he meets on sex and dating websites. Lastly, in Arcadia, McLeod explores adult video arcades to discover an architecture defined by the screen.
