You are as Readable as a Book

Photo series and Publication visualising data

This photography shoot and embroidered mask visualises your online data. I downloaded my Facebook data to find 742 folders of information about myself including my entire location history and my facial recognition code. I embroidered this code into a mask which is worn alongside tattoos of these folders. These abstract representations of data prove the sheer amount of information that social media sites hold on us and how we often hide behind the masked facade of our online images. By tattoo-ing the data onto my skin I can take back the ownership of my online data and wear it on my sleeve.
