Collected Works

In the age of the so-called Big Data, a hype term these days, our daily lives are characterized by the lack of privacy and the rise of surveillance and control managed by certain hegemonic models of new media. In view of the fact that my strings of personal data are so valuable to Google and all third-party corporations tracking me, I decided to print out my web search history and call it literature. Collected Works is a hardcover book for a hardcore world.
