    ABSTRACT

    Throughout my life I have been radiographed, sonographed, scanned, and had my blood pressure, bone structure, muscular mass and heart beats measured... I keep myself safe. Any strange anomaly can be detected, photographed and analysed. Surveillance is needed. Technology is needed for surveillance to persist. In the name of health and well-being, one is advised to watch, to prevent and obey medical procedures.

    Continuously, I am presented with images mediated by technology, pertaining to a code I cannot access for I lack the knowledge to interpret it, and yet they proliferate around me... Can they perform who I am? Can they tell my story? Maybe I should ask: can I perform them?
