Sensible Data, 2015 – 2018

“Sensible Data” is an interactive installation consisting of three machines that invite to create a passport from your personal data. Take a picture of yourself and a machine will draw your portrait. Send an email and an algorithm will judge your mood, age, gender and beauty. By pressing a dubious button, you can get a nice confirmation stamp. Thank you for your contribution!

This project aims to explore the issues of ‘confidence’ surrounding data collection systems: fun in exchange for personal data.
After having completed the playful process, the user receives also an email from the installation, sending him all the data of a previous user (fingerprint, photo and email) that matches based on an absurd criteria (The amount of lines of the portrait)

If you are interested in the making process, Have a look at this site containing images and videos.
