i See v.2 by Alexandra Valy (2010)

“The piece ‘i See’ is a comment on the inherent uncertainty of life. We go through our daily lives being recorded; data about us is being compiled and analysed, used and fed back to us in a different form. Information is no oracle and the knowledge of what we will become is always out of grasp.  As we manoeuvre through the sea of information that is thrust upon us we find ourselves still grappling with (or avoiding) fundamental human questions.” Alexandra Valy 2010
