Shell Performance is a partially sexually explicit software art installation from 2016 which is based on the content of three hard drives found on an electronic waste dump in Ghana by the KairUs art collective. The installation is sifting through the masses of personal files of the unidentified previous owners of the hard drives and transforms them into an ASCII art-inspired digital collage that focuses on audio files, documents, images and videos (mostly mainstream pornographic imagery) questioning consumerism, privacy, digital and electronic waste management and everybody’s personal relationship to data and to the devices on which they are stored.
