Will - A tale about the price of privacy

  • Lidia Zuin

This study aims to illustrate the paradoxical conflict between our desire for increased utility through optimisation and increased autonomy through privacy. By exploring our interactive narrative and technology visualisation tool, you can situate yourself in a near future where decisions around privacy are not clear-cut. We will present the seductive nature of voluntary surveillance and the steep cost of mass adoption. We will ground the narrative in the emerging technologies that facilitate these future scenarios. My role in this project was as a researcher and writer of the first drafts of the interactive narrative. Available at: https://atelier.net/projects/will
