Period Tracking Protocol

Keywords: Redacted auto-ethnography
Period Tracking Protocol is inspired by Jenny Holzer’s paintings where she uses declassified secret service documents and transforms them by adding black blocks.
The piece departs from one of the pages of my auto-ethnography and has been transformed with black blocks to depict the practice of self-censorship (not entering/sharing data) when engaging with digital tracking technologies. The black blocks change the original meaning of the text, creating a discontinuous poem.
