Numbers in a computer – that’s all we are. We all have them. Social security, driver’s license, passport, bank account, credit card, vat number. They reduce us to a singular form.

I don’t deny their necessity, but boarding this flight and needing to check my bag, I was no more than Seat 28E to the airline. Ticket them, pack them in, and get this plane in the air! It makes me think about migration. About the refugees, people without these “numbers” that ultimately become statistics.

Chiara reminds us in the most rote moments, we still have color, we have those stamps in our passports, the experiences of being alive that a computer will never be able to capture.
Even if the barcode or numbers stand at the center of the painting, they are surrounded by so much more.
People. Emotions. Impossible to replicate. One of a kind.
