My practice is about the dehumanization due to the new technologies in our society. We, humans, are now considered as a data. We are all classified, registered, referenced as a number. This is the lost of humanity. To make that project work, I have been researching in different areas within several mediums like newspapers, TV series, books, videos, etc. I have also written a dissertation about surveillance and the control resulting of it. This work is made of 99 pictures of people wearing a white boiler suit. The idea of the boiler suit is coming from the book Brave New World, Aldous Huxley, which actually makes the classification side even more powerful. Those are see through boiler suits as we are still individuals even if we are losing our humanity. I have left a blank image for the last one symbolising the universal aspect; this could be anyone in that space. Also it shows an on-going project. It could be realised with people from all over the world. The title symbolised by a barcode reinforces the picture in the different aspects: classification, reference, data, control. The actual question is: why are we a data?
