stolen.data/confessions was an installation presented at [brutalizer] on 30.10.2010.
stolen.data/confessions was an installation consisted of a large screen and an arcade joystick mounted on an illuminated Perspex plinth.
A scrolling database dump, harvested from the Searching for a Psychometric Lover dating site, was projected on the screen.
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 joystick allowed viewers to slow down and read the personal data implicating themselves in a voyeuristic act of data theft.
