In this workshop Heath Bunting shows you how to create your own legal identity, demonstrating how identities can be constructed over time by developing relationships.

About

arebyte gallery is pleased to present Your New Identity, a workshop led by Heath Bunting.

An identity is a mutable object. It’s negotiated between people, organisations, and institutions, formalised in documentation, actions, and possessions. In this workshop Heath Bunting shows you how to create your own legal identity. As Bunting demonstrates, identities can be constructed over time by developing relationships to position a “person” within a chain of mobile phones, bills, correspondence and other “personal” data.                               

Heath Bunting explores the porosity of borders. Often performing as an interventionist or prankster and finding form within everyday acts of resistance, Bunting's work reaches its public through systems of documentation and distribution including photography, print publishing and the web. Dismantling the divisions separating art and everyday life, Bunting prioritises information and action. His work is based on creating open and democratic systems by modifying communication technologies and social systems.
