“Berkay Tuncay in his recent work and research focuses on relaxation videos. Constituting a mass consumer product, these countless videos, meditation, yoga lessons or other beloved ASMR channels have accumulated on the web and gained popularity among xennials, millennials or white-collar workers. They are the personal survival kit helping to control and minimize anxiety and contemporary day-to-day disorders. They are supposed to fix the back pain and the stress that they might actually be causing. We create the diseases and we create the tools. We create the tools that create the diseases and so on. Poison and remedy. ‘A healthy mind in a healthy body’ henceforth intertwined with our technological lives.”
