The PeopleDatabase archive is considered as a meeting place for discourse, ideas and action.
The leading thread is the collection of passport photographs. Used as a mirror, they provoke an answer given by artists, philosophers, musicians, writers and other interested participants.
The archive is considered as a social structure for cultural exchange, and questions the interdisciplinary investigation between multiple participants.
For the Radiophonic Festival, Annemie Maes proposes a series of 10 remixes out of the People Database. New York soundscapes create the background for contributions by the new york poet Kristin Prevallet. Her 'spoken word' reflections are infiltrated by viruses and as such the original texts and language will be slowly transformed.
