World Data bank


The World Data Bank marks the establishment of a new legislative entity, seeking to confront the increasingly asymmetrical exchange of our personal data to corporate actors.

Through the interactive Data Collection Point, a new ontology of personal data is examined. The agency is given to the user to make an inconsequential, non-binding step towards a voluntary, crowd-based dataset politic. The growing dataset represents a dormant repository, to be used for training future intelligence.

The installation is a performative enactment of the New Data Manifesto.

The World Data Bank is a techno-optimistic call towards the regaining of ownership over our present flows of data.
