My MAD Story

At a time when the practice of self-documentation has become a mass obsession, it seems crucial to reflect upon the effects of instant digital technology on our experience of the present. Melissa Ghazale curates her personal video archive in an attempt to re-conceive the notions of memory and subjectivity as re-framed through new modes of recording.

Melissa, born in 1992, is a Lebanese visual artist. Her work exposes the confusion between her experience of subjectivity and digital memory. Melissa made the mistake of recording herself constantly and projecting it publicly. She also has a bad habit of going through other people’s diaries.

Melissa keeps watching herself watching me.
