'I have nothing to hide.' - This is what we say when we talk about online privacy. Perhaps you do indeed have nothing to hide, but there is a lot to protect! Are you curious to find out what we know about you?
‘wait, what?’ is an interactive installation about online privacy. The visitor can play a game while pressing different buttons on a light emitting cube. The rules are not explained and there is no goal you can achieve. This makes it impossible for the visitor to win.
When you play the game the installation will win a lot; your time, your attention and a lot of knowledge about you. Sounds familiar?
Online websites and platforms do the exact same thing. They do everything to keep you engaged and make a profit out of the people spending time on their platforms. ‘wait, what?’ helps to create awareness around online privacy and inspires the visitor to strive for a better digital climate.
