Lifedrawing the Attention Theft is a series of public life drawing sessions hosted by Deptford Community Cinema (2018-2019). Drawers were invited to study the  positions in which we are data-producing using digital devices, exploring the use of new technologies as a form of bodily labour. Shown in Body Politics of Data (2020), by Alexandra Jönsson, London Gallery West, Westminster University (UK). Models: Erica, Mel and Alex.
