The project consists of a A/V performance.
A new collaboration between Helena Lingor & Jenny Gr?f Sheppard that aims at the sonification of unheard phenomena in the realms of the postdigital era.

Data sets of various kinds (such as the average amount of energy/per time unit used by social media or the frequency of memory backlashes induced by using Facebook as opposed to ?classic? media) will modulate specific sound sources or related parameters,to reveal connections & correlations of present-day phenomena emphasizing the presence of the human body in the midst of it.
