With data playing a significant part in our daily lives, with people taking countless photos, keeping diverse notes, and tracking various aspects of their lives on their phones. Even our memories can be considered data, turning our brains into datasets that are internalized in our egos. This constant manipulation of personal data raises the question of what we would be like without it.
While being surrounded by our own data, we start to ponder whether it molds us into who we are. If all our data would be taken away, would we still retain our essence? Are we defined by our inherent characteristics or is it the collection of our own data that shapes our identity? If we were to erase all traces of our personal data, would we eventually revert back to the person we once were? If we forget about everything, how would others perceive us? These question regarding the impact of our personal data on our lives serve as the driving force behind this project.
