SCRIPTING NERVOUSNESS 2-CHANNEL VIDEO, 4'35"
︎The video ‘Scripting Nervousness,’ responds to the psychometric approaches of the body; it attempts to expose the madness of data-driven self-improvement and the way in which these create feelings of anxiety and nervousness. To produce and simulate the emotions that arise, I construct different absurd scenes by decontextualizing everyday objects: a desktop screen depicts a dead fish that is slowly dragged by a car to through a field of dry flowers, revealing the sentence ‘continuous self-improvement’ underneath; a non-functional code highlights the arbitrary convention of software language.
