I Shape Cookies,
Cookies Shape Me
Marshall McLuhan said: "We shape our tools, and thereafter our tools shape us." Today, in the digital era, I would rather say: I shape my cookies and cookies shape me. People need to accept tons of website cookies every day when they browse. Those digital cookies were designed to remember users' stateful information in order to recommend what you may like based on your preferences. Recently, I collected all of the banner ads and recommended articles from websites which had given me cookies during the day, cutting them down into pieces of paper and inserting these content into fortune cookies I made. I employed this kind of cookie making process to visualize how internet cookie and their user shape each other mutually, which blurs the boundary between the physical and digital world.
