Atlas of ID
How readable are you?
Limit your future possibilities by filling in this survey. Answer “Yes”, “No” or “Maybe”.
A reality that can be fully translated into data assumes that machines can read and comprehend it. When reality – including you – is not readable by a machine, it ceases to exist. Your machine-predicted future will then be based on generalizations and probabilities of you. It will not be based on you.
We urge you to reclaim your future, your reality, your agency, your diversity and your imagination.
Atlas of ID was developed as part of the second edition of CODE: Reclaiming Digital Agency, a collaborative project by IMPAKT [Centre for Media Culture] (Utrecht), School of Machines, Making & Make Believe (Berlin), Werktank (Leuven) and Privacy Salon / Privacytopia (Brussels and Antwerp). CODE 2022 has come about thanks to the support of the Creative Industries Fund NL, City of Utrecht, Democracy and Media Fund, Fonds Soziokultur, Cultural Participation Fund, the Democracy and Media Fund, the Dutch Embassy in Belgium (Brussels), the Dutch Embassy in Germany (Berlin) and the Goethe Institut.
