What do you love and hope to never lose due to digital mass surveillance and erosion of privacy?
Privacy Seed is an art installation to challenge the intersections of personal spaces and data privacy, the connection of human identity and its digital extensions. A wooden tree structure holds at its center an anatomical heart object with an heartbeat sensor.
By holding this heart in their hands the participants start interacting with the tree lights and sounds.
The participants’ heartbeat will be used to “seed” a secure digital random number generator that publishes its results to the web. Privacy Seed is a reflection on our personal-and-digital identity boundaries. It is an exploration of our intimate spaces and their public digital shadows.
