Tracking Transience: A Month of Sundays (2009)

Projection, Internet.

Hasan Elahi began this project in 2004, as a response to the fact that he was mistakenly singled out by databases used in the US War on Terror. The artist decided to upload to the Internet in real time as complete a record as possible of his life, so that US authorities would never have to wonder where he was or what he was eating or his most recent credit card transactions. They could just look it up online. Ultimately, Tracking Transience is a commentary on the surveillance – overt, surreptitious and inadvertent – to which we are all increasingly subject and, possibly, a means of evasion by overloading the system with too much information to be intelligibly processed.
