Our Data

our data is a prototype for an incremental clicker game that leads to libraries of resources about data resistance, rights and power. The game looks into the idea of bringing data closer to the body in order to understand the implications on the way we navigate the world..
It draws heavily from the book ‘Data Power; Radical Geographies of Control and Resistance’ (Dalton and Thatcher) and you can find development notes here.

Toolkits for Counterparts online exhibition

Disinformation, disability justice, and the logics of code, anatomy, and infrastructures are only some of the themes presented by UK-based Yifan He, Kate Frances Lingard, and nil00, and Filipinos Mirjam Dalire, Paolo Lorenzo, and cj silva aka frameweaver.

3 animations showed in the window Remade Network, Glasgow looking at cycles of repair 

As part of the ‘everything must go’ project 

There where some films that I showed on little tablets that used conversations around the game as a starting point
they should be able to be watched here soon, there is one up currently titled ‘trust’

cards and links

I can send over instruction videos and manuals if anyone is interested 

I had a chat with the wonderful Jazmin Morris and Alice Yuan Zhang which was facilitated by Rebecca Edwards
