Me, My Quantified Self, And I
How do we perform data, and how does data perform us?
Our lives are increasingly entangled in digital spaces, yet we struggle to find common understandings of what it means to live digital lives. Me, My Quantified Self, and I offers a tangible experience of our digital world by asking “How do we perform data, and how does data perform us?” Pushing back against clean, minimalistic, cyborg aesthetics, this work reimagines our digital world as the messy, cluttered, complicated ecosystem it is.
The full experience of this work includes both a participatory installation and 60-minute dance/theatre performance.
This work is created in partnership with the Border Quants research collective.
