What is the
connection between same but different people? Who am I? What my identity is?
This is a collective
self-portrait and social investigation of identity.
It is a try to find
out if unknown person would join a project by knowing only authors name and
surname. It shows that sameness, typical identity data can be start for a
research. Project connects all of the women who joined a survey.
Research of identity
began with fragility of identity data. 18 persons were found, 13 of them were
not possible to reach, interaction was made with 4 people but only one of them
joined till the end of the project.
In video, two girls creating self-introduction. They are saying same sentence: "My name is Ieva Butkute." Both of them are looking at the camera for more than one minute staying silently. It is a silent self-presentation and collective portrait. This kind of performance creates deeper experience and helps to substitute inception of time.
