[Art, Design & Research]

{Data, Digitalization & Society}

You probably click it, multiple times a day: "I agree with the terms," "Click here to continue." "I give my consent" or "Accept all." The 'consent button' comes in many variations. But what do you permit? What data do companies and governments collect about you? And for what reason?

 

Studio Julia Janssen creates awareness of the impact of digitalization on society. With her art, Janssen challenges technology's implications on an individual, social, and political level. By making innovative yet accessible perspectives on the complex world of Internet economics, She makes people - from ordinary citizens to politicians - think about the function of privacy, the value of data, the importance of digital sovereignty, and the future of online identity.

 

Studio Julia Janssen creates movement. Not towards privacy– but towards a digital society where you can choose who knows what about you.

Why :i:like Green

Would you like to get to know me as well as Facebook does? Let’s play a game with lots of data they collect about me, from all over the world wide web.

 

Facebook's algorithm tells me I'm interested in things like museums, sportswear and technology, prefectures of Japan, mathematics, and the color green. The platform detects very particular aspects of my personality, but is it this who I am? And if so, how do they know?

One of the legal foundations for collecting your data is your informed consent. But what does 'informed' mean, when in practice, that means thoughtlessly clicking on a button gives permission to hundreds of companies?

 

Because in in one-click, 0.0146 seconds, you might accept 835 privacy policies. It will take hundreds of hours to read all of these conditions. So, let’s do it together!

 

‘0.0146 seconds’ is a collective read out loud performance in which everybody can participate – An act against the exploitation mechanics of the data economy. For the sake of control over personal information.

All eyes on me

Visual experiment on surveillance.

One Click

835 privacy policies, you accept with just one-click on 'got it' when you visit dailymail.co.uk. An A4 book with a thickness of almost 10 cm.

 

And a special edition, printed on microfiches – 750 copies will be preserved for the next 500 years

The Attention Fair

Kathalijne Buitenweg (GroenLinks) during a debate on the future of the information society in the House of Representatives:

"Julia Janssen shows the tremendous importance of art and culture in making us think about what is happening in our society. Secondly, she shows the absurdity of the premise of permission. Because how can this be 'informed consent?'"
