Book and installation realized for the group exhibition
“The Giant Floating Eyeball, Finance & Algorithms”, a collaboration with the Dutch Ministry of Finance. The installation is a mash between a therapist couch and the office chair. This kind of furniture was primarily designed to make it possible to work for eight hours in the same position: a tool for productivity. The office couch is combined with a chat bot called Eliza that was developed during the 60’s and works similar to person centered therapy. Visitors of could lye on it and talk her. Our version of Eliza contains parts of the reader we compiled, and would share points of view with the interlocutor. The work was fueled by a text called “How to heal a Depression” by Franco "Bifo" Berardi and our quest “Can an Algorithm be a Therapist?” We looked at mental depression and economic depression —the personal and the economic event as interrelated and not merely affecting the individual. We searched for symptoms and causes in our culture and compiled the reader with it. In the collected texts the working body, the work environment and work ethics are quite central.

The soundwheel generates a speculative sound to a certain composed word. Messages can be written by moving the wooden dowels. The pitch of the sound is influenced by the speed with which the wheel is turning, the amount of wooden plucks and
their position on the cylinder. The surface also functions somehow as an analog animated
billboard. The object is a fusion between prayer wheel and music box.
The soundwheel is meant for public space, it is wind-driven thanks to four cups but if you are so lucky to live in a friendlier climate you can simply remove them.
