Center for Technological Pain (CTP) is a mock company conceived by Dasha Ilina that offers DIY and open source solutions to solve health problems caused by digital technologies such as smartphones and laptops. Among the prototypes it has developed are mechanical eye shields that reduce eye-strain, a headset to free the user’s hands, an insomnia-free box and various more or less absurd contraptions to relieve strained elbows and fingers. Ilina, who is part of a generation of millennials who never take their eyes off their smartphone, also offers DIY manuals on how to build low-tech accessories from cheap materials. CTP further questions the negative effects of technology by adapting self-defense techniques to fight this contemporary addiction. (text by Marie Lechner)
