In collaboration with FutureEverything, TodaysArt presents ‘Chattr’, a newly commissioned artwork and provocative design experiment.
The lead artist for ‘Chattr’ is Ben Dalton and the inception of the project was based on conversations with media artist Kyle McDonald. ‘Chattr’ asks a deep question about the Internet and our life online – how much of our data are we willing to leak into the public online domain? We live in an always online world, and are growing accustomed to our online interactions being saved, stored, and sold by global online companies.
The lines between offline and online, and also private and public, are becoming increasingly blurred. Could private conversations captured in public places be next? Where do we draw the line?
Chattr is a FutureEverything project supported by The Creative Exchange and the Arts & Humanities Research Council. It is by Ben Dalton, Drew Hemment, Elliot Woods, Mel Woods, Joel Porter, Lara Salinas and Joeli Brearley.
