This body of work explores the fluidity of creating a personal narrative on the self through the use of collected and created datasets. Narrative suggests stories, and as Connelly and Clandinin state “humans are story-telling organisms who, individually and socially lead storied lives” (1990; 2). Constructing, understanding and articulating our ‘story’ to the self and others requires ‘thick’ descriptions of the lived experience (Geertz, 1973). Consider Fry’s assertion that “data never stays the same” (2008; 3). In this residency I explored a visual narrative of the self using relevant datasets, personal and public, to articulate complex and tangled realities.
