DATA PROTECTION


According to the law of data protection, a sound recording is also a data, which cannot be collected without a consent of the other people. Therefore, we do not have the right to surveille our personal space, even for our own safety. The question, which is opened by the project, is if we can harvest the sounds that are penetrating our personal space; do we have the rights to do it and archive the soundscape that is entering our personal space?

The project will be constructed in two stages: the collection of artist’s personal space soundscapes (with the public warning sign, which is a practice used in public space buildings in order to legally surveille the public) and the materialization and interface of the collected soundscapes (interactive opportunity for the public to re-create new composition of the artist’s personal space and the manipulation of collected data).
