In her work, visual artist Iza Pavlina creates fictitious identities, using them to enter various situations and thus explore certain socio-economic systems and power relations, and the occurrence of social anomalies within them. The Confidential Waste project is the result of collecting and arranging wastepaper snippets from local banks, subtly emphasising the dangers of personal data misuse and questioning the safety of (online) activity.
