T.R.I.P. app from Monica Studer and Christoph van den Berg
from Monica Studer and Christoph van den Berg
We are media artists Monica Studer and Christoph van den Berg. We are living and working in Basel, Switzerland. We are fine; we have a great place to work here, even though we feel a wee bit isolated. Working as an artist couple is a big advantage in times of lockdown and social confinement.
As all of our communication happens via digital media now, we started thinking about our devices which may not feel so comfortable with the sudden amount of work they have to do for us. Our scientist friends over at the FOWDIB, the Woodhead Foundation for Digital Consciousness, are working on a digital remedy for that. In their T.R.I.P. research programme these guys develop pharmaceuticals for stressed and unhappy digital devices. Their latest thing is a mobile app for Android, which you can download and run on your smartphone. The relaxing effect of this app will improve communication between you and your device.
