Data Selfie by The New School, Parsons

Data Selfie is a Chrome browser extension that I used to track myself while I interact – click, type, scroll, dwell – with content on Facebook and that predicts various personality traits and evaluations based on that data. I used it for two weeks (April 18 – May 1, 2016) and transformed the results into a time-based data visualization that is presented as a projection on translucent material to represent on the one hand the ‘glassy’ consumer and the transparent person, but also on the other hand the lack of information transparency.
