To create a personal project based on our own interests, and related to our dissertation paper. Mission: "To exemplify the point that there is only so far we should go on the route to absolute security, and the globalisation of information. We have to understand that privacy is a fundamental part of our lives, and can affect our social groups in a very negative way." The project was the most art based project I did on the degree. The idea was to create a faux government department focussed on observing our communications. It used messenger logs, and if the chat between a user has been over a significant period of time (eg. more than 3hours a month) then a risk assessment occurs, calling into question whether those to individuals should be communicating. A risk note is then placed along the chat line, this will be a click button for the next section.
