True.Self, False.Self, Body.Self, Digital.Self
In-between Privacy emphasizes on the interconnectedness of society and addresses the visibly rising importance of the “Body.Self” interactions. The project aims at developing a new language for understanding privacy (physical & digital) of the individual and moreover discusses the private/public space definitions within a society made of diverse cultures.
In-between Privacy is grounded on the idea that there is no separation of “me”, but rather a collective “I”. It manifests through an interdisciplinary series of performances, discussions and digital prototype(s) focusing on the geo-political nature of the “Body.Self” to enhance social interactions at various levels with the audience and with the artist. It adheres to the concept of “True.Self” & “False.Self", where the “True.Self” can also be hypothesized as the copy of the digital content, as Avatar, that is unknown to an individual.
