All experiments are based on the principle of ‘data stocks' for more information about this system, check out the research page.

The data economy is all about categorizing behavior and stereotyping people. To understand and predict their behavior best. This experiment is about combining three ingredients (one from [demographic], [sociographic] and [psychographic]) that shapes a stereotyped product. These 24 products are fictional characters and just some example of how (meta)data can be
combined to create. These products are used
in several elements in THE ATTENTION FAIR.

A free service is never for free. Platforms like Google, Facebook, and Spotify, are freemium services; they offer you a free service, and you pay with your data. A commonly used system in internet economics.
This game is designed as a freemium service. You don’t pay any money, but you do pay
You can find the game rules and mechanics under the button ‘explanation’ in the game.
We often are approached as ‘customers’ or ‘users’ from platforms like Google and Facebook.
But when you consider our behavior as the revenue model of these companies, you could say
that we are the product. This installation shows a display of 24 fictional characters, the
so-called ‘products,’ On the front side of the products, you see the three most characterizing elements: a demographic, sociographic and psychographic ingredient. On the side that says
‘this product contains the following ingredients,’ it shows all the behavioristics and scores within the data stock system. At ‘product facts’ you will find all the values and the products’ total values. On the side ‘suggested use’ and ‘behavior analyses,’ you can read which companies and institutions might be interested in using this product.

When data has a monetary value, it would be possible for inflation and deflation
to happen. The value of data can increase or decrease. Within the system of data stock, this will mean personal inflation or deflation:
your value can go up or down by a behavior change or an adjustment in your living situation. These signs illustrate pop-ups with notifications when this happens, and how this influences the product value.

What’s the value of your data? By answering intimate questions about your life, habits, social interactions, health and goals we
can determine the exact amount of co:i:n
you are currently worth, according to
the data stock system.
‘We care about your privacy’ is the most commonly used first sentence of tech-companies their privacy policies. But what comes after that? Endless lines with information, loads
of pop-ups and links. An unreadable and inaccessible text. To make these more readable, I designed a visual language for privacy policies. These flags carry the chapter ‘what kinds of information do we collect’ of the Facebook data policy, version April 19, 2018, in the visual language.
Currently, privacy policies are non-negotiable and created by platforms themselves. You have to accept these, to use the service. In the system of data stocks, you will be the one controlling your data. Meaning you should be the one creating the policy. How do you want your data to be used? What information may companies know about you? Do you want to trade with commercial companies, or donate data for scientific research or innovation? It’s your choice; you make the rules this time.

Besides the policies you actively accept, there is also the ‘trusted third party hosting network’ meaning when you accept the policy of a website, you also agree that these terms
