Jennifer Morone (US)

Jennifer Lyn Morone highlights the human right to own personal data by turning herself into a corporation—Jennifer Lyn Morone™ Inc (founded in 2014). Her identity, physical & mental abilities, biological functions and data, are assets only she can exploit and potentially turn into profits. Any data created by Jennifer Lyn Morone™ Inc is trademarked, copyrighted, and therefore protected, a privilege normally unavailable to private individuals. This deliberate act provokes us to consider the issues around data privacy, ownership, profit and the nature of data exploitation by corporations and governments. Her interaction invades and exploits the very system that creates the conditions for personal information control by corporations. By embodying a purpose solely driven by capitalistic methods and mentality, Jennifer Lyn Morone™ Inc satirically highlights the struggles, legalities, and technical boundaries of our man-made systems.
