Non Liquet (it is not clear)

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


This series of digital artworks were created and disseminated over a number of social media platforms during March 2018 as part of the 'SketchUp Residency'. I wanted to demonstrate, explore and record the fluid impact of data on the self as a form of narrative. While also reflecting on the fetish straits associated with self-tracking practices. Do these generated narratives really inform our understanding of our lived experience? How do concepts & terminologies around personal data make sense? 
This body of work is entitled ‘Non Liquet’. A term that originates in Roman law and literally translates into English as ‘It is not clear’. It refers to a complex legislative situation where a court cannot reach a clear decision on a case due to the absence of suitable law or the injustice of the legal consequences. The complexity of data and information available and continuously generated about us and our environments can depict an intricate and unceasing thread of discourses rather than conclusions.
