Short Notes on Concave Bubbles

In the struggle for identity, the manifold of representations and self-made constructions of the selves that over-flood, the internet shows a paradoxical state. The individual cannot exist without the acknowledgement of society, still every shared manifestation confirms the interdependency in the seek of uniqueness. A social-individual hybrid space is created and the artist recognises it as a concave bubble: an imaginary shape that describes the physical space which covers the totality of a given universe except for its interior - the negative space within a bubble. Short notes on concave bubbles is a live coded performance reflecting on personal experiences of the partly-fictional every day life of a programmer, the recollection of interviews conducted over online chats, and profiles' information extracted from different online social platforms.
