Sensible Data

Martin Hertig (CH)

Sensible Data is an interactive installation consisting of three machines that invite you to create a passport from your personal data. First, take a picture of yourself using a smartphone. A drawing machine will automatically sketch your portrait onto the card. Send an email to the machine that triggers the portrait to be processed on an online facial recognition service to judge your mood, age, gender and beauty.

This information is then stamped onto the card letter by letter. By pressing a dubious button, you will get the finishing confirmation stamp. Thank you for your contribution!

Offering fun in exchange for personal data, this project encourages us to explore questions about confidence in data collecting systems.
