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 Sebastian Vargas at ECAL (Bachelor Media & Interaction Design), Postgram is a bot for human storytelling that explores issues of public data, privacy and image making using a process of “fair hack” to develop a story narrative. It speculate about the social network behaviour and search for new possibilities for film content.
