There is a narcissistic aspect in surveillance which empowers internet users to monitor their behaviours daily, overcoming the fear of being observed. Sharing structured, rationalized and complex private content with intimate details online places users in a digital (p)anopticon. This content is not easily read and is subject to multiple interpretation, hence it’s possible to find various starting points for speculative stories. “I Stalk Myself More Than I Should” is an archive of expired memories that were meant to die within 24 hours. The work displays a selection of Instagram Stories preserved through the use of screen recordings. Going against the nature of this feature, the project investigates appropriation, interpretation and representation, as well as qualities and hierarchies of humans memories shared and stored online.
