Ruth Freeman explores the theme of unachievable human perfection by applying an abstract image created by virtual tools on a small screen and painting it to proportion. This attempt to build a perfectly rendered image by hand emphasizes the glitches in our everyday lives and brings humor to the absurdity of trying to keep up with the function of digital tools.
