From A to B (2014)
Which kind of traces do we leave in our daily lives? My fear of getting lost in the middle of a new big city has led to generate an important amount of digital information about where I have been and where I am going to be. Using Google Maps as an essential tool in my daily routine, I have been recording these two digital and physical itineraries in order to recreate these tracks from my own perspective. A personal map of Berlin.
This project has been taken part of the Transmediale Festival 2015 in Berlin.
SELF-TRACING / SELF-WATCHING
"The recent issues on surveillance systems create a sense of how fragile digital communication is and also shows how easily our personal data can be accessed. On the other hand the average user of social networks like facebook or twitter doesn’t care so much whether private information goes public or not. Far from it: self-tracing, self-watching, self-publicity and self-quantification is considered useful for individual purposes. In fall 2014 weißensee academy of art berlin offered a seminar on above issues. As a result a social sculpture is developed in the cafe stage of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt during one day of the transmediale. In a collective approach while arranging and rearranging individual contributions, the installation changes its shape. At the same time the installation builds its own story."
