IN LIMBO is a web documentary that is augmented and personalized with excerpts from each viewer’s own online life each time it is watched. This project reflects on what happens with the data we produce and the identities we develop online. IN LIMBO imagines what a documentary essay of this would look like from the point-of-view of the data itself. The experience mixes each user’s own data with noteworthy figures from the field of digital archiving: Brewster Kahle, founder of the Internet Archive, or Gordon Bell, an early experimenter with “life-logging”.
By combining social media, mail, and other personal accounts into a linear film, IN LIMBO explores the concept of the “augmented documentary.”
