A WORKSHOP BY AUDREY SAMSON (Artist, Researcher in new media)
12.10.2014 (星期日Sun) 3:00-5:00pm / Connecting Space-HK, 18-20 Fort Street, North Point, Hong Kong
Conducted in Language / Free admissions
This workshop examines the different forms of digital data traces that we (often involuntarily) leave online. How is our data being used? How do issues of privacy, data ownership, surveillance and cyberbullying relate to networked digital data? In the workshop we discuss these issues and we think about how data deletion can be a form of gesture against quantification and surveillance. We will think about creative ways we could ritualize the erasure of data and what kind of personal data we would like to delete. No technical experience is required.
我們日常 (非自願性) 在網絡上遺下的不同形式的電子數據，將如何被取用？工作坊會討論有關的私隱、數據所有權、監控及網上欺凌的相關議題，亦會觸及銷毀數據作為一種抵擋人被數量化的反監控的行動。個人有什麼數據希望可以永久銷毀？如何以創意的儀式去銷毀數據？這些都是工作坊會觸及的。參加者不需要任何技術性的經驗。
