Speculative Privacy: Practical and impractical things you can do to your phone

without comments

“Speculative Privacy: Practical and impractical things you can do to your phone” is a lecture-workshop-performance format I presented at the Datapolitics conference track during the annual International Summer festival, Kampnagel, Hamburg on August 20th.

First the audience got stickers on their smart phone cameras at the entrance (in true Berghain manner) and then was instructed to do a few tests and look up settings on their devices during the talk. In the second half of the presentation everyone was invited to the stage to test different tools and materials on their phones while we kept discussing todays privacy questions. Some of the ‘mini workshops’ are useful others don’t really make sense but offer a strong therapeutic moment to ‘grill’ your mobile phone in a non destructive way.  You always wanted to flush your phone in the toilet or bury it in cement? This is your chance! Have it vacuumed in a plastic bag and dip it in paint or through it in other actions!

How to cement in your phone in a non-destructive way!

Aram Bartholl: Speculative Privacy
Aram Bartholl ist Konzept- und Medienkünstler. Im Mittelpunkt seines Interesses steht die kritische Auseinandersetzung mit der zunehmenden Digitalisierung unseres Alltags. In seinen oft humorvollen Arbeiten überführt er Items aus der Netzwelt ins Analoge, um bspw. die Allgegenwärtigkeit von Internetunternehmen wie Google sichtbar zu machen. In seinem performativen Workshop TRANSPARENCY zeigt er welche digitalen Spuren bei der Benutzung von Smartphones entstehen und welche Möglichkeiten es gibt, diese zu verwischen.

Thanks to the Kampnagel team for making all this possible!

Point & Next

with 3 comments

‘Chat Roulette Adventure’ is a first result of the ‘Point & Click‘ workshop I gave last week at KHM – Acadamy of Media Arts Cologne, Germany. In a four-day workshop we ran a hand full of experiments on how to encounter Public Space in computer game adventure style. Most of the interventions took place outside  in the City of Cologne. At night we adapted part of the show for the ‘public space’ of  Chat Roulette

Update: Pics from the whole workshop week!

Thx to all participants and thx Jonas Hansen und Lasse Scherffig for the invitation!
Stay tuned for more documentation!

The one-day workshop I gave yesterday at Play08 17.-20.9.08 Potsdam, DE was great fun. The group in my workshop reflected on computer game experience in relation to day to day life. After my presentation the participants were invited to get involved in some paper work. ;-)

Thx for the invitation!
Thx to Philip Preuss for support!

Stay tuned for the Lab08 presentation/exhibtion on Saturday. Lab08 shows existing work and is developing a group piece during the four days of play08.
