My Passwords, 2020
This piece follows the advice we are all given but few of us follow: to keep a hard-copy record of our passwords. A fully-saturated list covering the full page of an oversized legal pad, it exaggerates conventions of “password strength” – including use of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols – demonstrating a distortion of the English language for maximum digital security. Meanwhile, the idiosyncratic nature of choosing passwords – favorite songs, private jokes, the names of friends or lovers – injects a sense of individual expression into a mechanical process.
