TINKER EMBODIED LOVE DATA
Thanks to the “Tinker” algorithm that’s made by the ‘company’ TINKER & EMBODIED LOVE DATA, it’s now possible to create the perfect connection between two people through body odor, a touch of the body and voice. However, there is a catch, you have to give your personal data away. But aren’t we doing this often? Because think for yourself… When did you entrust your personal data to the internet? TINKER & EMBODIED LOVE DATA is an interactive performance where the participant takes the first instance thinking he can find a real connection through new technology. But eventually finds out that his data is being stolen. The aim of the project is to empower people to get to know each other in real life instead of their mobile phones. In this way, our loneliness in society diminishes and we give our personal data less easily away in the online world.
