Hannes Egger, Google knows who I am, 2008

This artist set out to find his own identity. He researched his name on the worldwide web and discovered many things. He was able to find out where Hannes Eggers live, where they work, which books they read and in which clubs or forums they are active. The artists printed out the results of this research and stuck them on a wooden house. The artist made a decision and beat a hasty retreat. All he left behind was a deserted, barricaded hut and the question: ‘A=A?’
