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?

   [AR Object & Essay]

                 2019


Is the experience inside the walls an art institution only shaped by its content displayed as artworks? Can art be represented by how a subject feels and reacts walking through the exhibition but never focusing on the works, but rather on their own thoughts and feelings? Contradicting the objectification that the art market seems to praise, this project, an augmented reality video that appears from an empty object, tries to emulate the feelings of an anonymously person’s walk through at a museum. This piece is categorized as a selling object, marked as its collection of replicas, but only usable when it comes to pointing a camera towards it. This is a secondary outcome to a research essay entitled as this work.

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.
