mixed media (ink jet printed records; mobiles), work in progress

The basic idea of this project was observation of a person as a “perfect”, “sculptural” form; it involves mobiles (people who filled in the records were invited to the place of the exhibition, and each was tagged with his/her archive number), and the archive–the result of the attempt to unify the data of the mobile/subject.
At the beginning of the project, I was curious is it (and to what extent) possible to manage (un)structured content within the archive form, but at the same time keep the uniqueness of the mobile/subject itself. Records were filled in by mobiles/subjects thus (un)covering personalities, creating a sort of anarchy within the strictly determined form.
After some years of collecting records, the archive evolved and got a new dimension – the one of a certain “diary”. Records are now acting as silent witnesses, hiding changes (both physical and mental/emotional) that mobiles/subjects experience over time, and which are traceable since there are mobiles/subjects that were put in the database more than once…
