Anna Ådhal’s practice explores the aesthetics and politics of digitised and simulated crowds generated by new computational technologies and takes form primarily through sculptural installations, film and performance. Anna’s research investigates the different natures of today’s crowds such as the physical crowd, which is tracked and monitored, the fictional crowds in film with their linked simulations and the virtual crowd online which behaviour is archived into big data.
