Deconstruction Doris

Deconstruction Doris is something of a persona and a tool. Naive but not unintelligent, Doris was conceived as a YouTube channel artwork in order to create short episodes that unpack the visual literacies on display in the Geneva Museum of Natural History. This constitutes that first playlist on the channel, where Doris is both hesitant and overconfident as she shares her screen in typical YouTube fashion, also eagerly asking for and awaiting comments and responses to use as new material. The namesake for the character is Doris Lessing, a journalist, writer and left thinker who was born British in Persia and grew up ostensibly in Southern Rhodesia, modern day Zimbabwe.
