Your wallet is your key to everyday life – it contains your credit cards, debit cards, driver’s license, social security card, membership cards, shopping cards, small personal items, family pictures and more. It’s also your digital DNA. We carry this vault of critical information on our person throughout the day. It is telling a story of who we are and where we belong.
I asked family and acquaintances to give me a copy or a scan of the content of their wallet. Using this material, like a collage, I created new documents.
By creating new content for the wallets, the new identities are created with the exchange of personal data and imagery amongst people with different ages, nationalities, religions and backgrounds.
With this act I try to raise a question ”how do we belong”?
Which are the borders between the defined spaces of national and religious belonging and the recent spectra of globalized individual experience.
