Beauty Parlour #07:
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.
