Digital Escapism 

Wellbeing, internet culture, productivity 

This interactive installation is a carosel of QR codes, each one activating for only a 15 second window each hour. 

Behind each QR code is a curated digital care package, collected from recognisable satisfying and soothing online trends, all played against a backdrop of the ticking timer. 

Soothing ASMR content, sand cutting videos, slime, lifehack videos; there exists a paradox in attempting to remedy our digital fatigue by turning to the very devices that render us out- of-order in the first place.

In collaboration with Stan Bidston Casey. Exhibited at Bodies of Work, June 2021
