LAB PROJECT:

WEB-VR EXPERIENCE ON MASS SURVEILLANCE

The amount of information being collected on the private lives of citizens is without precedent. But without a sense of scale or totality most of us are unlikely to interrogate this rapid move to a surveillance state. The team proposes a WebVR experience to let us visualize the use of our own data - emails, browsing history and location, to get a personalized perspective on this growing practice.
