[Art, Design & Research]

{Data, Digitalization & Society}

"I agree with the terms," "Click here to continue." "I give my consent" or "Accept all." You probably click on many of these daily. But, what do you permit when you thoughtlessly click ‘agree’ on a privacy policy? What data is collected about you, by whom, and why? And what is the value of information flows? What does privacy mean, and what influence do algorithms have on your identity?

 

Julia Janssen is an artist and designer who creates awareness for the impact of digitalization on society. With her art, she makes the complexity of data and data-driven technology accessible to everybody.

 

By connecting scientific, political, economic, and legal issues with Art and Design, we explore how you gain control over your data and autonomy over your digital life.

We make room for debate; What do and don't you want from an online society?

 

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

Non-discrimination by design

A guideline to make organizations and programmers aware of the danger of biases in Artificial and Machine learning systems and minimize discrimination in algorithmic decision making.

 

This project is commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Interior and Kingdom relations.

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?

0.0146 seconds

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.

To interactive experience

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

An installation consisting of twelve games, experiments and visualizations on data-ownership and the monetary value of personal information.

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?'"
