The word “Profile” has a literal term and moving into the digital world a more abstract term. In the real world, a profile can be really anything viewed from its side angle, for example a silhouette can be the basic shape of the profile of someone’s face. A profile is also information about a person which ties us to the digital world where people post their profiles online. A virtual profile could be a Facebook page or a blog that someone creates for themselves. On a virtual profile we allow information about ourselves to be shared with the public by posting pictures, biographies, thoughts, ideas etc. that relate to us.

Our performative action was to have conversations with various people and get to learn about their “profile” get their history, learn about their interests, likes, dislikes philosophical opinions and so on. After obtaining our subjects conceptual profile we literally drew their profile as a silhouette from the side.

1.) Beatrice (Someone who does not live in the same town as you)

Our first subject was Beatrice. Since this project goes between real world and virtual concepts I thought it would be fitting to use a range of social media to obtain information. Randomly using chat roulette I met Beatrice. She is from Romania and after exchanging Facebook information I was able to talk to her and get a conceptual profile. – Ian
