A wonderful article has appeared on the blog of El Paìs describing the Enlarge Your Consciousness in 4 Days 4 Free project.
Identities on sale: this is the main theme of the article, as suggested by the action through which we are trying to support the discussion on the new forms of privacy and publicness which are promoted by social network and, on a wider scope, by the whole of digitally interconnected humanity.
The sale of internet users profiles, which become your personal human tamagotchi, describes this situation.

AOS, Art is Open Source, is an international informal network exploring the mutation of human beings with the wide and ubiquitous accessibility and availability of digital technologies and networks.
We move across arts and sciences, using technology, communication, performance, art and design, to instantiate emotional actions and processes that are able to expose the dynamics of our contemporary world.
We do this in academic, artistic, business and activist domains and, actually, we are focused on moving fluidly among each of these spaces.
