Some of my other works include: Space of a sound
(2011), a distributed sound trap; Control yourself
(2012), a way of entering into a video surveillance system; and Paranoiapp
(2015), a tool or social psychology experiment in the form of a mobile application.
Paranoiapp is a social-psychology experiment in the form of a mobile application and an algorithm of users' interaction. The project is based on the fear of losing your own privacy. But unlike others, we want to aggravate that fear to see what happens in the future.
To take part in the experiment you need to install the application on your mobile phone. After being installed the app continuously leaks your geolocation data and sends this information to another user that is chosen by the algorithm.
The aim of the algorithm is to choose only a few people to follow for a whole city. In addition to that we also provide a communication layer for users who have a common target so that they can collaborate with each other in a chat to plan further actions.
