Created by Martin Hertig at ECAL (Bachelor Media & Interaction Design), Sensible Data is a playful installation consisting of three machines that collect user's personal data, evaluates mood, age, gender and beauty, to create a 'passport' that user can take away but which also randomly sent (without user's knowledge) to another participant.
In this project Martin explores the issues of 'confidence' surrounding data collection systems. As our personal data is collected, it's validity, interpretation and accuracy are thrown into question. While the installation is designed to be playful (intentionally), the user is also sent data of the previous user, including fingerprint, photo and email that match absurd criteria derived from the amount of lines in the portrait.
Created by Maxime Castelli at ECAL (Bachelor Media & Interaction Design), Nelson is a tiny connected module designed to bring life remotely to everyday objects. It’s based on a very simple foreward and backward movement as we do in the everyday life, like pushing a switch.
