The filmmakers of the award winning Netlix documentary, The Great Hack (2019) use mixed reality and surveillance technologies to bring to life the invisible world of data. Audiences will experience how smart devices harvest data from our devices and how this data is then used to control us and persuade us. Using a virtual smart living room, the project helps individuals visualize the pervasiveness of data collection in our private homes. With the help of collaborator, will.i.am, the audience learns how major corporations are using and profiting from our data.
