The Expenditure Archive. Marxist-feminist questions aside, Ashley reflects on how the labour she has put into those camgirl streaming sessions has both been emblematic of who she was, who she performed to be, and how far apart these are dissected from her current work, although they are both dusty virtual relics and harbingers of the future-woman. It can never be erased, this hologram of the cam-girl in and out of performance copied and pasted into pirate networks, bound by embedded links, xeroxed, replicated, stapled in copyleft, rewarded in expenditure and now, spectral without authenticity, the eldest child of future pornographer-director, in a similar way that the cyborg denies its patriarchal maker, going rogue in the margins of the web.
