Installation view at Science Gallery Detroit. A series of 20 interactive scenarios embedded in four kiosks pose questions around consent to public health surveillance, placing the participant in a clear position to make choices relating to what kinds of personal information to share or to keep private. Participants will input their responses via a smartphone App. If consent is given, these responses form part of an evolving heat map projected onto the gallery wall. Collaboration with Dr Laszlo Horvath, Research Fellow at Exeter Q-Step Centre, University of Exeter. Current residency at the University of Exeter is part of the national research project ‘Identity, Inequality and the Media in Brexit-Covid19 Britain’ https://brexit-studies.org/covid-19/ funded by the Economic and Social Research Council as part of UK Research and Innovation’s rapid response to Brexit and Covid-19 Image credit: Doug Coombe for Science Gallery Detroit
