Relaxing Data - Collective Performance
“We are now in 1989 ... You can picture the Berlin wall falling, the faith, the freedom, the end of the cold war ... thousands of families reunited ... and in Switzerland, the World Wide Web is invented at CERN ... you may now relax your knee muscles.” Relaxing Data is a performance, a seance of mindfulness relaxation following Moore's law, using the body of each participant as a timeline of thirty one years, toe to forehead, 1989 to 2015.
Lauren Huret is an artist, writer and researcher, living in Geneva.
