What Do We Get out of What We Put into the 'Blueberry iBox'?

Tracking Virtual Identity

Proposed  Injection Site

Proposed Injection Site



New technologies are shifting the nature of how identity is understood. A wide range of information is being put into computers on a daily basis. This project endeavours to illuminate some of the embodied effects coming out of this human relationship to technology. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) will be used to track virtual identities and store their associated data. The model of recessive inheritance and the concept of the 'meme' will be applied to the data to expose hidden (recessive) effects emerging out of our interaction with computers. Issues of surveillance, gender, work and play, all specifically relating to new technology, are also addressed in this project.
