User Friendly, a performative workshop and audio installation
designed by Liz Magic Laser, Cori Kresge and Hanna Novak

In an exclusive guided experience, performer and healing practitioner Cori Kresge will lead participants through a dynamic exploration of breath, sight and touch to radically reimagine our relationship to the screen.
User Friendly draws on the artists’ research into current practices of “biohacking”, ecstatic movement and mind-expanding corporate retreats. Participants will be led through hand-and-eye conditioning exercises, breathwork, and meditative visualizations, which will draw on the corporate mall-like vistas of the skyways.
