encode: bodybag

video performance + film [2003]

There comes a time in one’s life when the mind finds itself limited by the body.

Bodybag: ritual of disembodiment.

Content-Provider is a corporation specialised in anthropocerebral digitisation and digitised data sharing. Digitisation leads to complete dematerialisation of the human body, a process that enables the mind to free itself from its physical boundaries.

* Content-Provider offers free digitisation in exchange for all the data generated from the body.
