Currently, privacy policies are non-negotiable and created by platforms themselves. You have to accept these, to use the service. The Attention Fair. is an aim for ownership rights over data: you will be the one controlling your data. Meaning you should be the one creating the policy. How do you want your data to be used? What information may companies know about you? Do you want to trade with commercial companies, or donate data for scientific research or innovation? It’s your choice; you make the rules this time.
Part of The Attention Fair. installation
The Attention Fair is the result of 15 months
research into the (future) of ownership rights
of personal data. An experimental game installation, consisting of 12 games, visuals and experiments each visualizing a part of this research. This project is about sharing knowledge about the current data economy, creating awareness on the problematic situation we as ‘producers of data’ are currently in, and exploring the possibilities how to become the owner of our data.
