The Identity Workshop by British Artist Heath Bunting evolves from his ongoing long time research into the construction of personhood.
What is a person and what is identity? These questions haunt Bunting since 2004 when he started the Status Project, “a guide to jumping bureaucratic hurdles”, as he calls it. The artist will give an insight into his elaborate expert system, a thorough analysis of how the status of our identity is determined by administrative frameworks and identifying features stored in various commercial and governmental databases. Starting from his works in the NODE17 exhibition “Designing Hope” participants will learn how identities are built and how new identities can be created in order to seek protection from direct traceability. Bunting will introduce them to the manuals he has synthesized from his own inquiries and guide the participants through the first steps of using the freely available material.
