The Darknet Spa
av Unnur Andrea Einarsdóttir
The Darknet spa is a multi-disciplinary, interactive performance and installation. The work focuses on the topic of anonymous internet browsing through what is called the Dark web or Darknet. It investigates the responsibility we place on our technologies and how they can ultimately function as a mirror that reflects back to us the broken parts of our society. Simultaneously the work underlines the gap between our physical and digital experiences, incorporating the viewers body into the Darknet as a materialized physical space. The Darknet spa offers the audience to delve into the subconscious of our digital hive- mind, offering a glimpse into the darker sides of our collective psyche.
