01/We analyze the impact of data-driven culture on social roles and relations, as well as the vulnerabilities that it gives rise to.
02/We ask how intimacy functions as a contested resource in data-driven creative labour, public careers, and social connections.
03/We explore and develop democratic ways of managing, protecting, sharing, and using personal data
The work packages develop experimental methods for studying data leakage and advance open, socially sustainable solutions for collecting, sharing, managing and using data.
INTIMACY IN EVERYDAY DIGITAL PRACTICES
Data tracks our everyday lives: what we do and buy, where we move and belong, what we feel and think, and what kinds of discussions we have on social media. Data-driven technologies form an infrastructure for the operability of everyday life while also giving rise to inequalities and risks to privacy.
Boundary work between the public, the private and the intimate are routinely ephemeral in public occupations and careers. The work of both politicians and performing artists evoke specific risks of digital vulnerability.
Online platforms are key to how people make sense of their sexual selves and their connections with others. At the same time, social media services largely ban sexual content. Novel possibilities for intimate exchange also entail novel limitations and risks.
INTIMACY, WORK AND DESIGN
Data-driven culture has given shape to new forms of creative labour. The collecting and sharing of data broaden into clothing design while the boundaries of work and leisure grow porous. It is essential to identify, predict and minimize vulnerabilities connected to data-driven creative work and its results such as smart clothes.
Legal regulation concerning the ownership and protection of personal data is in constant development. In addition to the critical examination of current practices it is elementary to further solutions that foreground human rights, social equality and privacy.
