- Controlling_Connectivity (2011-12) was a project encompassing online durational performance, exhibition, and a limited edition artist's book. The 10 day performance took place at Art Laboratory Berlin and involved the artist making herself available for online contact 24 hrs/day for the duration of the piece, while completely shut off from the analogue world in the darkened Berlin gallery space. The project explored the potential hidden consequences and psychological implications of our growing reliance on the internet and online social networks. Updates, documentation, and comments were posted on the Controlling_Connectivity Tumblr page both during the performance and on an ongoing basis during the project. More video documentation of the performance can be viewed on Vimeo, and more information about the project, including an essay from Christian de Lutz is available on the Art Laboratory Berlin website. Controlling_Connectivity was curated by Regine Rapp and Christian de Lutz and was funded by the Karin Abt-Straubinger Stiftung.
Works from the Controlling_Connectivity series - subsequent to the solo exhibition at Art Laboratory Berlin, have been shown at Grimmuseum Berlin, Stadtgalerie Mannheim, PLATFORM Munich, and AVU Gallery Prague.
