For the HEK Net Works series, the art collective Keiken has released Ozone, a new filter and series of short performative videos, posts, stories and live stream on HEK’s Instagram. Ozone introduces a new fictional and tongue-in-cheek digital spiritual practice called ‘Ozone Layering’ formed during the lockdown. Users must practice still or slow movements whilst their environment moves around them. The filter maps the environment onto the users’ faces, creating a personal connection. With this new work, Keiken plays on trends, rituals and language used on Instagram and in social media.

Ozone layering method.

Step 1:
Go on Instagram and find a filter (for best effect please use ‘Ozone by Keiken’, this is available on both @hek_basel and @_keiken_ .
Step 2:
Once you have found the filter, take three deep breaths and then press record. Film yourself standing still or with slow movements with the filter on (this can either be a short 15 second session or a longer one, I like to go no longer than a 5 minute livestream).

Step 3:
Post the Ozone Layering session either through stories or posts, don’t forget to post a caption to spread the Ozone Layering spiritual message and gain more followers.

Step 4:
Once lockdown is over, we will practice faster movements, the speed of these movements will be organic and dependant on whether capitalism resumes its normal speed or whether other forces will change this rhythm.
