Looking Outwards 10

Eva Mattes is an artist living in New York. One project on her website that caught my eye is titled Life Sharing. For the project, she opened the contents of her personal computer to a public internet server. This project is interesting because she places trust in the public to find interest in her personal life. With the piece she comments on privacy, saying that it’s stupid; she blurs the line of visibility of peoples lives. The piece originally is from 2001, just after the turn of the century, but well into the digital age. Mattes is an artist originally from Italy.
