Şafak Çatalbaş realized a series of performances. In Istanbul in 2017 she created fictional news and broke them to the audience in the room, as the Twitter newsfeed was projected onto the space wall, as everyone could see live. Imitating the language of a news anchor, she synchronised Twitter news streams with her own stream of consciousness.
In Berlin in 2018 Çatalbaş invited the visitors to focus on her Facebook profile, projected onto a tub filled with water and start running a hypnosis session. The session gradually turned into a process of automatic talking where her stream of consciousness was synchronised with the Facebook news feed.
For the upcoming performance »Post Truth Spa Center - seance02« Şafak Çatalbaş shares some tips and advices for you lovely participants, to get ready for this new session:
»Trust your body. Trust your mind. Hear your inner voice. Rather than singing, tell your latest dream as you have your morning shower. Scream loud as you breathe out and avoid to eat red and blue coloured foods in breakfast before you come to the session. Do not reach for your phone at least for 24 hours. Taking a social media fast for one week is highly recommended before this session. Wear comfortable shoes and don’t forget that the future is a female cat.«
