When we have conversations about big companies collecting our personal data on the internet, most people say that they do not mind since they have nothing to hide. But even if you have nothing to hide, as an individual you have a lot to protect.
With my interactive installation 'wait, what?' you will get in touch with data collecting machines. While you are 'just playing a game' the installation will collect your information and defines interesting conclusions. Are you curious if 'wait, what?' knows anything about you?
'wait, what?' consists out of a physical and an online part. The audience can interact with the physical installation at Kapitaal in Utrecht on the 11th and 12th of September 2020. On this page you can interact with the online part of the installation and influence the physical part of the online installation that's located at Kapitaal Utrecht. Via the Jitsi livestream above you can see what impact your online actions can have in the real world.
Jorien Aberkrom (1997) is fascinated with programming electronics. With interactive installations she creates awareness around the dark sides of technology. While playing with the installations, the user gets suck in a world of phone addiction and data collection. By creating more awareness, Aberkrom hopes to inspire more people to strive for a better digital climate.
