The theme of Teran’’ artistic research project is following: how to practice and theorize following. The study outlines the emergence of an artistic research method – combining data mining, systems for mapping, storytelling, and translation – and its application in the fields of media art, microhistory, and activism.


The artistic works (several books, text, film, installation and public performance) are developed as the aesthetic outcomes of conversations, negotiations and reflections around questions such as: How are tracking, guiding, following and stalking used as artistic research methods? What does it mean to tell a story today? Why is it important to shift positions and subjectivities? How do these changes also involve processes of translation, between context and scale? How does the work deal with the threshold between public and private? How do the materials serve as guides through the research?
