Swap, Use & Abuse Your Identity - Mouchette, Staffan & Ayumi :: February
28, 2008; 6:00 pm :: Mediamatic, Oosterdokskade 5, Amsterdam.
Mouchette, the online virtual character has an unusual status of
existence: www.mouchette.org. She is the author and the creation at the
same time, and yet through her remote internet life she remains
invisible, anonymous, genderless, untouchable, neither alive or dead.
The participants of her interactive website confide in her in the most
intimate way, because she am an imaginary being, living in their own head.
Her personality embraces all of her participants’ minds and together
they form a collective consciousness pondering over questions of life
and death in the digital era. With the reactions of the participants to
her website she has composed animation films displaying many of the
texts she received, spoken out through speech bubbles by pixellated
characters who tell their most private thoughts.
