In contemporary society, the identity of citizens is summed up by series of digits, numbers that we are assigned at birth and until death. Our personal data is encoded, recorded and analysed by a multitude of surveillance devices (social networks, CCV cameras, customer loyalty schemes) We are watched, analysed and oppressed by all these intelligent tracking systems and powerless to fend them off. CNI180280250829 explores this notion of citizenship using tape and charcoal to highlight the citizen’s social imprint.
