copy+paste.machine is an instant time travel device to 10 seconds in the past. We are always dreaming of the past, bygone days of 10 seconds prior - just before we finished our coffee or had our last puff of tobacco. If only we could hold that moment longer. Now you can! With the genius device copy+paste.machine we can capture your best pose. Like a dream, this machine can capture your electronic self in a glowing cyber punk splash of light. Now you can finally enjoy a face-to-face conversation with you.

Our lives are no more. We live in media, specifically social media. Nothing exists unless a digital footprint is created allowing strangers to view and comment on every piece of us. Here we can do a deep dive into cyberspace and allow our image to be absorbed into the cesspool of catastrophic meme machines, troll-farms, and crypto mining.
