The Creator’s Project has a great entry on some art projects that play with the hot topic of the day: online privacy. Each project has its own spin on the subject, showing how, in the digital age, the only thing that’s certain is the Terms of Service agreement you skip over every day. Some highlights:
Google Alarm-A simple browser plug-in that rings and sounds a quaint, web page-from-the-90s alarm every time data is sent to Google. Which is all the time.
fbFaces-Artists use a web crawler to scour and download public Facebook profiles pictures, before printing them out and pasting them all over a room. Duck faces optional.
My Little Privacy-an analog installation with digital repercussions. A motion sensor drives a thin curtain, attempting to block the view of passersby in a hopeless quest for privacy.
