Biohead Actualized

, Anna Davis and Jason Gee
2008

In Biohead Actualized a digital ventriloquist doll regurgitates the language of contemporary self-help strategies, the actualisation movement (EST), psychotherapy and new age personality auditing. Engaging in an uneasy conversation with the audience, the doll answers very personal questions about its emotional state and continually gives unqualified advice. In the tradition of the ventriloquist show the Biohead offers a façade of humanness that transfers hidden agendas and speaks the unspeakable. Confused, wounded and neurotically manifested the Biohead is a by-product and mouthpiece for a society infatuated with 'the cult of the self’. Anna Davis and Jason Gee are media artists who have been working together collaboratively for the past 8 years.
