In one-click, you accept 835 privacy policies. It will take hundreds of hours to read all these conditions. So let's do it together!
In a pop-up radio studio, we take time to read and record privacy policies. 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 and ownership of data.
For 6-12 months (until the book is finished), this radio studio travels to different locations and events, inviting people to join this movement. Every participant reads out loud for 12 minutes: long enough to get some understanding of the content but not too long. Participation is for people an extraordinary experience: informative, meditative, shocking, entertaining, and frightening at the same time.
All sessions are documented by audio, a photo, and the project journal (who read when and were, which page(s) and company(s)). After completing this process, the result will be an audio artwork (approximately 400 hours and over a thousand voices), along with the photos and registrations. The title of this work will become: 0.0146 seconds equals … hours.
The Attention Fair is an installation consisting of 12 games, visualizations, and experiments about the lack of control and ownership of personal information.
Do you WhatsApp with friends? Instagram memorable moments? Binge-watch series on Netflix? Snapchat pictures with bunny ears? Browse the web? Use Google Maps? Track your running progress with an application? Of course, you do. You love the internet and the opportunities it has created. As do I.
However, using these services require something in return. Something that is easy not to notice or consider. You pay for them, with data. It seems a logical exchange; service for data. But since the amount of data you produce is ballooning, so is the power of big-tech companies.
Your data is the revenue model of the Internet. By generating, analyzing and combining this information, companies personalize content, target advertisements, predict and even manipulate your behavior and needs.
Currently, you, the producer of personal data, have no control over what happens with it. You are a packaged profile of habits, desires and preferences. You are their product, sold for the highest offer. You have been enslaved by the data business.
The Attention Fair is an experiment about the future of ownership rights of personal data. Because you are the product of your own information. I created the system, but you supply the data.
How much will you be worth?

The Attention Fair is the result of 15 months research into the (future) of ownership rights of personal data. An experimental game installation, consisting of 12 games, visuals and experiments each visualizing a part of this research. This project is about sharing knowledge about the current data economy, creating awareness on the problematic situation we as ‘producers of data’ are currently in, and exploring the possibilities how to become the owner of our data.

In 2010, Greece went bankrupt and received a loan scheme of over 110.000.000 from every country of the European Union to save the euro and Greece.
Now, four years later there is still no perspective that Greece can pay back their debts, but the countries which have lent money still want something back. I created this system where I recalculated the loaned money into square kilometer, to divide Greece over the money claiming countries.
Tiananmen square 1989. An event we, in the western world, all know and see as a sign of liberty. In China, almost nobody knows about what happened this day. The picture is forbidden, and it is also unknown if the man who is standing there, knows that this picture is famous in our world. With this series of posters, I wanted to show the big contrast in manipulation between the western and the Chinese media and government. We want to make a spectacle out of every event and blow the story. In China, a lot is censored, and the government is acting like this was just a day.
