Privacy Statement

This project explored to what extent people feel the need to protect their privacy. The intervention consisted of security cameras and signs with QR codes, installed in three different locations across the city of Zoetermeer. When passersby scanned the signs with their phones, a website opened showing a picture of themselves and simultaneously an audio file asked people to sign up for a two-day workshop about internet privacy. After enough people signed up, a training was organized, where participants learned about digital self-defense. The course aimed to increase awareness about the dangers of the rapid dismantling of privacy, both in the city and on the web.
