m-Health explores notions of social health and well-being and how these relate to our immediate environment, be it built or natural. m-Health is a site for rejuvenation and spa rituals and a place for leisure and contemplation.
The acceleration of technological advancement has unarguably increased our efficiency, however instead of opening space into everyday life it has steadily eroded it. Due to mass social mobilisation and increased pressure of flexible working conditions there is a rising interest in health and well-being. Personal time and space are now a valuable commodity and considered a luxury. This phenomena is embodied by an increasing amount of health and data-sharing applications for mobile devices, a trend for which the term m-Health was coined.
m-Health explores aspects of our changing social and natural environment and the responsibility we have towards it. The project invites seven artists to activate the space to provide an alternative to the spectacle of exhibition space and to create a spa. Using an artistic voice as a context with contributions in the form of performance, sound, video, and sculpture the project responds to the need for a place to reflect and contemplate on the state of our social relationships and the sustainability of our immediate surroundings.
