DocLab Live: Who is Your Data?
Saturday 22 November 2014
We’re all being tracked. Everywhere we take our smartphones and everything we do online, we’re leaving behind a digital footprint. We complain about Facebook changing its privacy settings (on Facebook, usually) or try alternatives, but in most cases we simply go ahead with our digital lives, hoping for the best.
What does our data really reveal? What is contained in all those databases filled with our personal metadata, search strings and Facebook Likes?
Join creative technologists and media artists for a live exploration of our collective digital footprint and the future of surveillance. Brett Gaylor will present his upcoming project Do Not Track and together with the audience we’ll go on a live treasure hunt through the search history of a mystery guest, created in collaboration with SETUP and the Food Film Festival.
This event is part of DocLab: Immersive Reality, a co-production of IDFA DocLab and De Brakke Grond.
