Documentation from our involvement at Miami Art Basel 2011 (at Miami Independent Thinkers and Graffiti Gone Global)
The piece is a reminder that nothing online is really “free.” We often forget (or might not even realize) that the online services we depend on for our most intimate and private exchanges (Facebook, Gmail, etc) are not exactly “free” nor are they exactly “private.” Every word you email to your family and every link you share with your friends is being archived, indexed and monetized, either in the form of targeted ads and/or other data-mining ventures. Sometimes these institutions encroach a bit too much on our most private data and when those that notice make a stink about it they get accused of being miscreants (bit.ly/57HrKM) or at best get an, “Ooops, we’re sorry we invaded your privacy like that.” (dthin.gs/sjjRLb)
