Tonia Larem

web personal applications Social media concept

From 2009-2015, Tonia Larem (an anagram of "I am not real") was the name of an on-going investigation into online identity. An open-source personality: the username and password to her Facebook account was freely available to let anybody participate under an assumed identity and with complete anonymity. Unfortunately, her account was maliciously deactivated in 2015 without my knowledge. I was by no means responsible for what Tonia did on facebook (some of which I disagreed with) but I have used her for a number of real-life and virtual exhibitions/projects and encourage others to use her in any way they wish when a fictional character is appropriate.

Some of those projects have been documented on the site A Home of Sorts for Tonia Larem
