Talk / Anxious to Secure


With Eric Kluitenberg and Lancel/Maat

Sun, Feb 7, 2016
Conference Room 1
4.30–6 pm

How do we trust each other online? Do we need to see each other’s eyes? Or do we need to touch?

Tele_Trust is a performance-installation for an intimate networking body experience. The presentation creates an engaging agora, researching new parameters for online trust. It presents participants with a paradox: while in our changing social ecosystem we increasingly demand transparency, we cover our bodies with personal communication technology. Participants will meet in a wearable DataVeil, a tangible body interface functioning as a second skin and membrane for “scanning” online trust.
