Electrotherapy is the use of electricity with the purpose of curing disease and promoting health. At the advent of electricity Electrotherapy was presented to the public as a panacea for all sorts of ailgments but it was quickly dismissed by established medicine. In the present electricity runs every aspect of our life and promises to be the solution and cure all for physical and psychological troubles in the form of electric technologies. It is the life source, the "blood" in the veins of the Ai algorithms that in the future will apparently run everything for us while we lazily sunbathe under the light generated by daylight desk lamps. Are we all partaking in everyday electrotherapy, as electricity heats us, lights us, educates us, guides us, entertains us, transports us and connects us? Will we be able to produce more and more of this bloodline as more and more of our daily activities depend on it? Who will produce it and how will it be provided?
What kind of mystical electrified landscapes await us?
