(Roya) is rendering into language—in her own words—an experience that we all are fated to come to terms with. She is using her voice to call out the demon, so to speak, so as to help the rest of us see it. She is embodying what I am talking about that we all need to do – find our unique voice and articulate our experience of Wetiko in our own creative way.

My name is Kirsten Roya Azal. I am a psycho therapist in training, woman, author & artist with a special interest in digital technology, Islamic philosophy, Jungian and cognitive psychology and related subjects. I have a background in human - computer interaction and worked for institutions and groups like The Guardian, The Tate Modern Galleries, the Ministry for Culture Media Sports in England and others. I live and work now in Berlin.

On The Red Mother I write about algorithms,  authoritarian abuse (fascism) through technology, and in particular the abuse of women and children by the ever rising tide of toxic masculinity through digital networks. I  focus in particular also on the involvement of neo-liberal culture in these abuses, but also offer clues how to gather strength and how to fight back. This blog is a project in progress and new (data safe) features and content will be added over time.

I am also an exhibiting artist. My work was shown at the Centre Pompidou in Paris and in Toyko and some people have said nice things about my work. Further I am writing a blog on Jungian Psychology, Mental Health, Sufism, Islam, Philosophy, Traditionalism, Modernity, etc.
