Mapping Our Data Bodies with MOCA Toronto
From the apps we use on our devices to the surveillance systems on city streets, we live in a datafied world, in which information about us is being collected on a daily basis. In this workshop, we will navigate the impact of datafication to form a better understanding of our “data bodies” and how they are used, stored and shared by governments and corporations.This is a collab between MOCA Toronto and Digital Justice Lab.
