Facebook - The People-Watching Collection

By Joseph Kuhn

The People-Watching Collection is a set of music mixes representative of six individuals registered on Facebook.com. The people included have listed 'people watching' in the interest section of their personal profiles. Each of these six people has willingly submitted to surveillance in order to engage in his or her interest of people watching (or surveilling) on this online community. In the Facebook community, as in surveillance culture, all individuals are treated in the same manner with respect to the gaze of the surveillance device. Subsequently, people assert their individuality through the construction of personal profiles in the face of this mass identity. These profiles are akin to product advertisements, imploring potential buyers (or Facebook friends) to choose them. One is no more than the sum of his "favorites" and "interests". Individuals become commodities to be traded and collected on the Internet. These mix CD's are physical manifestations of the six individuals chosen, packaged in a deluxe set for your consumption.
