“Honey, I’m Data!” is an ongoing season of events, salons, workshops and digital encounters, exploring the extension of our identities into digital data.
Commissioned by Hervisions, “Honey, I’m Data!” will celebrate and recognise the epoch of ideas emulating from data-inspired artworks, the relationship we have to our data, and what that means for the future of identity.
The season launched on 27 May with an online ‘Data Party’: a live-streamed discussion with performances, hosted and streamed on the LUX website. The party marked the implementation of the new General Data Protection Regulation laws, which came into effect on 25th May.
Participating artists include Keiken, Doreen A. Ríos, Tamar Clarke-Brown, Nati Cerutti, Nyne Derricott, H Y D R A, Cross Lucid (Sylwana Zybura and Tomas C. Toth), Sophie Mars, Suzannah Pettigrew and George Stone. More details on how to take part in the Data Party here.
“Honey, I’m Data!” GDPR Data Party! is the first event in a series of workshops and talks, commissioned by Hervisions at LUX. The title “Honey, I’m Data!” derives from a speculative interactive RPG installation conceptualised by Keiken in 2016, in which players enter into a shifted reality where their Quantified Self (personal biometric data) alters a reactive environment.
