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.
Enlarge Your Consciousness is currently exhibited at JustMad, part of the ARCO Madrid art fair, with BTF Gallery, our companions in this project.
AOS and FakePress Publishing have been invited by Prinp.com to perform a showcase of our projects in which the idea of “publishing” mutates through the use of technologies such as augmented reality and ubiquitous devices and networks, in a process of reconsideration of the ways in which human beings perceive their cities and spaces, and the ways in which they live, work, entertain themselves, relate to each other and perceive their bodies and identities.
We will present some of the most recent and interesting projects by FakePress Publishing, featuring disseminated books, global publications, ubiquitous conversations and literary works in which thousands of authors contribute in real time from all over the planet.
The presentation will take place at “The Others” art fair, during Turin’s art week, on February 4th at 10pm (but please check on the Fair’s website for updated information on location and times)
