Joelle Dietrick and Owen Mundy: Tally Saves the Internet
11:00 AM-5:00 PM
Designed and created by North Carolina-based artists Joelle Dietrick and Owen Mundy, Tally Saves the Inernet is a new, interactive, participatory digital and electronic work that explores Surveillance Capitalism– the recording and monetizing of a user’s online interest and activity– through a web-based game. Users download the game as a browser extension, which senses trackers installed on each webpage and alerts and warns the player of their existence. The game invites thoughtful dialogue about the current state of data tracking, empowering players to protect their data and consider more ethical systems going forward.
