Digital Identities

A session at Digital Shoreditch Festival 2012

Friday 25th May, 2012

2:40pm to 2:45pm (GMT)

Keiichi Matsuda & James Alliban will talk about digital identities and will present C E L L and interactive interactive installation commissioned for Alpha-ville Festival 2011. This interactive installation plays with and proposes alternative landscapes in the technological ether surrounding our everyday movements. As our identities become deliberately constructed and broadcast commodities, our projected personae increasingly enmesh and define us. Cell acts as a virtual mirror, displaying a constructed fictional persona in place of our physical form. Composed from keyword tags mined from online profiles, these second selves stalk our movements through space, building in size and density over time. The resulting forms are alternate, technologically refracted manifestations of the body, revealing the digital aura while simultaneously allowing us escape from our own constructed identities.

Questions answered :
How technology is transforming social behaviours and online identity
