The piece questions the re-definition of individuals’ identities and privacy and personal freedom in the digital era when the limitations of the virtual and physical selves are indistinguishable. Individuals daily actions are endlessly recorded by technologies, each detail translated into bits – a succession of 1s and 0s, stored inside large data warehouses.
/bi:t/ is a metaphor of the “digitalization” of identity represented by the image of the artist’s ID where all personal text and image information have been replaced by the associated computer binary code. The artist’s digital and human identities intermingle as the green rectangle boxes flicker to the rhythm of my heartbeats.
The piece was part of the Dystorpia project at the Queens Museum on 9/2012
