stolen.data/confessions was an installation presented at [brutalizer] on 30.10.2010.
The installation consisted of a large screen and an arcade joystick mounted on an illuminated Perspex plinth.
Projected on the screen was a scrolling database dump stolen from an intimate dating website. The data scrolled up the screen at a speed that allowed some words to be picked out but was too fast to comfortably read the whole text.
The Joystick allowed viewers to slow down and read the personal data.
