Artist and activist Heath Bunting shows how you create your own legal identity. As Bunting demonstrates, identities can be constructed over time by developing relationships to place a given “person” within a web of shopping cards, cell phones, bills, government correspondence, and other “personal” data. Identity Bureau challenges the idea of personhood by showing how materially produced an identity is. In Identity Bureau he will sell the off-the-shelf natural persons he has created, and advise on how to use or make one’s own Identity.
