Raspberry Pi the Brain for a Machine That Playfully Interprets and Leaks Personal Data #PiDay #RaspberryPi

Sensible Data, created by Martin Hertig via Creative Applications

Created by Martin Hertig at ECAL (Bachelor Media & Interaction Design), Sensible Data is a playful installation consisting of three machines that collect user’s personal data, evaluates mood, age, gender and beauty, to create a ‘passport’ that user can take away but which also randomly sent (without user’s knowledge) to another participant.

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.

Martin explores the issues of ‘confidence’ surrounding data collection systems. As our personal data is collected, it’s validity, interpretation and accuracy are thrown into question. While the installation is designed to be playful (intentionally), the user is also sent data of the previous user, including fingerprint, photo and email that match absurd criteria derived from the amount of lines in the portrait.
