Central's Research Fellow, Dr Dani Ploeger, presents a new installation work, The grass smells so sweet, which will be inaugurated at panke.gallery in Berlin from 9 June 2018.
The installation combines Virtual Reality simulations, intimate voice recordings, and a patch of living grass to remediate a series of Quora and Reddit responses to the question ‘How does it feel to get shot in the head?’ Examining the particular negotiation between public and private performance on online Q&A forums, the work engages with people’s continued occupation with the physical body in relation to violence and (fear of) death in a digitally networked culture. The installation will be on show until 22 June. https://panke.gallery
