Michael Mandiberg: Quantified Self Portrait (Rhythms)

Denny Gallery on Untitled, Radio

Quantified Self Portrait (Rhythms)- sonifies a year of the artist’s heart rate data alongside the sound of email alerts. Mandiberg uses himself as a proxy to hold a mirror to a pathologically overworked and increasingly quantified society, revealing a personal political economy of data. The piece plays for one full year, from January 1, 2017 to January 1, 2018, with each moment representing the data of the exact date and time from the previous year.

Michael Mandiberg is represented by Untitled, Miami Beach exhibitor Denny Gallery (New York).
