Speed Awkward Date seeks to question the use of dating apps as an escape from oneself, as a tool to keep us distracted from our mental issues. Ana questions the Ana is an interdisciplinary artist; her work emerges from her lived experiences and the dynamics of emotionality and shame. Ana creates pieces of participatory art and ritual performances using her body as a test subject to discover how online culture and capitalism impact mental health. Ana documents and exposes herself to explore vulnerability, grief and how intimacy and detachment are experienced within our digitally connected world.
