“Merging with the Network”, an interview about Life Sharing


On the occasion of the recent re-launch of Life Sharing (2000-2003) we did a rather long interview with the amazing Paul Soulellis.

 

 

 

 

Life Sharing is back


For three years (2001-2003), we openly shared our home computer, making all its contents accessible to the public. Private material, including email, texts, photos, and bank statements, was freely available through our website. Made long before social media’s widespread influence, Life Sharing pointed towards the blurring of the public and private spheres. Originally commissioned by the Walker Art Center and newly restored by Rhizome, it can now be experienced again!
