KNOWSY

December 2016

Knowsy is a collaborative project of Maxime van Strijland and myself, which originated from an assessment at the Willem de Kooning Academy in 2016. Today, social issues play an important role in our work, where we are influenced by digital media.

By converting data into an analogue form of music, we create something fragile. We provide a platform for this data in an innovative way, this is played by means of a graph layout on a barrel organ. In addition to music, this sensitive form of information is also converted into products such as personal riso prints, music and crockery. 'Your' data is an open source, freely available on the internet, which we convert into a tangible form. You have the option to buy your own data back in the form of products. What you pay is up to you, 'How much is your personal data worth?'
