In the Age of the Internet, want to see what you have given up?
Go to the Glass Room
"To passers-by, The Glass Room looks like another slick, clean-lined store offering the latest shiny consumer products. Step inside, and you’ll discover something more unusual but nothing for sale.
The “products” on display have the power to illuminate our alternative selves, revealing the often contradictory and sometimes opaque dynamics of living in the Internet age. Who are we revealing when we’re online? What facts and fictions are recreated from our digital breadcrumbs? What is known about us, and why?
The Glass Room is a place to consider how you use technology and how those behind technology use you. We invite you to defamiliarize yourself with the overly-familiar."
" . . . The Glass Room, a pop-up art and information exhibit curated by Berlin-based rabble rousers Tactical Tech Collective and brought to life by Mozilla, the non-profit that brings us the Firefox web browser and fights for an open, safe, and accessible internet. The room is open 12pm to 8pm through December 14 and lives at 201 Mulberry Street in Manhattan.
If you can’t make it to NYC, check out the #glassroom hashtag on Instagram and Twitter, and dive deep into the website. Seriously, click through everything."
"The Glass Room is hands-down the most creative, interesting, and effective exploration of issues around internet health I have ever seen. You won’t find dry white papers about net neutrality in here. Instead the space is filled with creative, dystopian artistic exhibitions and real-world product marketing materials for truly disturbing services like Silver Mother, which basically let’s you track your parents as if they were terrorists."
