It examines how the risks occupational health of digital workers is structured along exploitative chains of production in the digital economy ranging from data producing child gamers, prosumers, and online workers, to data entry workers metal miners, and factory workers. The artistic outcome of the research is a collection of audio body relaxation exercises which soothe the body parts put under stress in different kinds of digital work.
