Eden Lazaness / art /  Log of Me

2014, markers graphite and ink on paper, 200x150 cm.

Measurable me is what I am.
Bytes of digital data, describes who I am.

I give my data to them. I give myself to them.
What they know is who I am.
What they know is the true reality.
What I think is abstract. Immaterial.

My self-portrait is the data I am.
SMS, call log, GPS coordination, IP address, Emails, medical information, document content, my personal information, biometric information, ID, notes, physical measurements.
My self-surveillance is the portrait of me.

The self is the trail of data left behind, like evidence in a crime scene.

Everything I write may be used against me.
