Data Therapy [healing required] (2017) is a performative intervention into the discourse of ‘big data’  created in collaboration with Loes Bogers. How does the digital hurt and please – and if possible – how do we recover?

The installationinclude ncludes audio therapy and a six-chapter long stop-motion animation film.  The title, “Data Therapy” refers to the audio artwork “Root/Tangle/Relief/Well Done/That’s It” (2017), an actual audio-therapy session, but it also refers to healing processes of destroying and reclaiming misogynist and oppressive images in contemporary visual culture explored in the project.

The installation “Data Therapy [ Healing Required ]” was shown at Art Centre Nabi (KR) as a part of the group show Neotopia - Data and Humanity 30.11.2017-31.01.2018
