Josephine Rock's interdisciplinary practice encompasses sculpture, film, performance, text, and photography. Her working methodology is research-led, like that of an investigative journalist, pursuing wide-ranging concerns from the amplification of power relations connecting the body and technology within online communities of ‘Doxy Spotters,’ to the co-option of mindfulness by the US army.
