Categorization, labelling; distinguishing the other have been part of human history since the beginning, and still is. The psychological human need to single out the “other” in order to elevate oneself to a heroic position, a position where mistreatment is acceptable and inequality has a place, seems to be the way that allows us to overwrite our moral compass. The work examines the labels I am identified by, with the help of internet search engines, in order to see what I am, based on the categories that supposed to define me.
