Keep me logged in!

My idea is about my dual identity. I had a double identity in a filtered society and after leaving
there this duality changed and then it was divided into my virtual and real identity.
I started freezing some scenes of my virtual identity by simply
using my camera. I took photos of my laptop screen while I was talking to my beloved through internet
and watching them by webcam, creating my virtual identity or catching up with the latest news about my country. Then
I printed many of these images and released them from my laptop frame. Now they are objects! I want
to make sure they exist. I touch them, I sketch on them, saw them, caress them and
bend them, until they scream, laugh or cry! That might be the proof of their existence!
…3///3… will finally break the concrete boundaries between my private life and my role in public life.
Here I am, welcome!
