visual policy

‘We care about your privacy’ is the most commonly used first sentence of tech-companies their privacy policies. But what comes after that? Endless lines with information, loads of pop-ups and links. An unreadable and inaccessible text. To make these more readable, I designed a visual language for privacy policies. These flags carry the chapter ‘what kinds of information do we collect’ of the Facebook data policy, version April 19, 2018, in the visual language.

 

 

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.
