Find Your Inner Metal Voice, 2011 and Crystal Energy, 2014 are both made using a knitting machine, presented in the style of a traditional painting which offers a semi-mechanical finish and, like her jumpers, combines craft, politics and text.
In Crystal Energy, Auerbach has isolated various insights offered to her by psychics she personally met with, reproducing them as graphic speech bubbles which appear like a mind map, or as thoughts, out of context, the way they might pop up in your brain. The statements at first read as a fun, ingenuous collage of ‘empowering’, self-help style messages, but after a second reading they begin to feel like hollow clichés rather than genuine empathetic guidance.
