I‘m your disease

Relations are always based on power and dependency. It’s a question about who seduces who, or, who is eaten up by who. When I talk about the relation between human and technology, I’m worried about our growing dependency and the lack of awareness on it.

I want to symbolically fight and take back the control: functionality has to step back and make space for objects, that tell the story of the ongoing conflict. Put on the body as a jewel, the wearer is outing oneself as participant in this war, by wearing a trophy in form of defeated technique.
