The domain of the digital must belong to users, -invisible, without a name, a role, or any interest. Here, life has been curated to a single extension, a meaningful and meaningless imagery. Are people hidden by too many images? Do they become images? Once virtualized, our skin becomes permeable and one day, it will detach itself completely from the hyper body and vanish. We [individual intelligences] have our image, like a wheel’s tire, stripped of its own form through its continued use. This, a practical evasion of biometric facial recognition -as the spectacle is the realm of vision, and vision is exteriority- is a dispossession of oneself. How dreary to be somebody! Shamefully elitist and ego driven. But telepresence is always something more than just the projection of the image. Am I the one to become nobody on the void of a digital screen? Or is my being entangled into my process? Hello, I’m nobody, who are you?

   [Interactive Installation]

                 2019


Based off a quote from the book ‘Age of Earthquakes’, this installation represents how digital facilities indulge a moral question beneath their pretentious built: can we hide our true self on the internet? Aiming to discuss the duality of profiles inside dating apps, social media accounts and so on, across the screen, questioning the alter identity of these profiles as it is a complex hidden of one’s personality. Within research about catfishing environment that happens online the indicative of an identity of a woman is blended with the portrait of a man that was arrested for the act of behaving like someone else on the Internet. Through a video installation and live code, the eagerness and desire to know someone one is mirrored by detailing in its core, in this case the pixel that form the digital image, that this is not who they truly are. As an awareness and discussing, this project remarks how there isn’t all good in the digital.

My artistic practice was curated by a poem called ‘I’m Nobody! Who are you?’ from Emily Dickinson, that confronts the fame and authorship in a beautiful and inspiring way. 
My artistic name, as I use, is Whoddat, allowing the anonymity to be its center while appropriating the Internet language as poetically written.
