This project aims to explore the issues of ‘confidence’ surrounding data collection systems: fun in exchange for personal data.
After having completed the playful process, the user receives also an email from the installation, sending him all the data of a previous user (fingerprint, photo and email) that matches based on an absurd criteria (The amount of lines of the portrait).
The three machines are modified versions of Piccolo CNC, an open-source drawing machine based on Arduino.
A Raspberry Pi serves as the brain of the installation, running a python script for each step of the process. Each script listens to the desired input and sends the plotting commands to the needed machine.
