In my work I seek to examine the expression and appropriation of personal identity. Is it possible to reconstruct identity, and even experiences, by examining the evidence left by individuals interaction with the world? If you strip personal context away from possessions, shared digital data, and consumer habits, how much of ourselves do we unintentionally or intentionally reveal through such externalities, and what implication does this have about conception and expression of identity in the 21st century?

Objects found containing personal information 2006-2015
In my endeavours to assemble the Personal Identity of others I have purchased suitcases of unclaimed luggage and have imagined their owners, their life style, their attitudes and their holidays from what I have found inside. Unclaimed is my reconstruction of the identity of those who I have never met but whose belongings I now own. I have travelled to the destinations I think that they might have returned from reconstructing their existence using their possessions (2009)
