Identität: The Physical Gestalt of Digital Identity

"Identität: [] evaluates how "digital identity" is generated by way of a series of digitally fabricated and readable data sculptures. More than 100,000 raw datasets from sources like, delicious, Amazon and Twitter were crawled from the web to relate 4 different criteria: personal interests, communication behaviors, activities, age of their online personalities. Based on the assumption that a digital identity is measurable and comparable, these datasets were then represented using custom computational tools. The data was visually abstracted and interpreted to give the disembodied digital identity a unique and characteristic "Gestalt" in form of a data sculpture."
