Data Doubles is part of my Doctoral Research
It consists on a series of ethnographic approaches and social experiments which take place in the digital spaces where people interact.
The goal is to gather samples that help to understand better the underlying complexity of social interactions and the construction of bodies of data, which end up representing us as individuals and as societies. The research is being conducted mostly on chat-like platforms, where people interact actively through text.
Parallel to that, a series of personal interviews are being conducted, collected and recorded in film and audio formats. The focus is set at people who spend more time interacting with others through the internet than in any other form.
