Project description

The proposal of the Biennale for Media Architecture 2020 refers to the citizens' digital rights.

We collect and provide huge amounts of data during our daily routine, through social platforms, surveillance cameras and sensors. But what happens to all that data collected? How is it collected? Are we even aware that we are constantly being watched?

Surveillance cameras monitor our movements and, as a public, we are starting to accept intrusive measures- as if we were enjoying public surveillance.

The installation aims to make a critique by creating an aesthetic representation of an invisible data collection, where visitors can be observed and discovered using cameras and sensors.

Visitors will leave their traces of movement in space and observe the possibilities of a face recognition system that recognizes (or does not) their distorted, newly created faces as they walk through.
The number of mobile devices and their MAC addresses will also be revealed, which can indicate the number of visitors at the right time.
At the end of the tour, visitors can receive feedback on their movements and tracking results as receipt.
