Transcultural Data Pact is a game of serious make-believe, in which role-play is used to explore how personal and collective data practices and devices might shape the attitudes and fortunes of a society.
In this scenario, an historic trade negotiation is underway between two nations with shared ancestry and clashing beliefs.
We would like to thank the 40 participants for their inspired and insightful improvised performances.
Transcultural Data Pact was created as part of Qualified Selves, a research project funded by UKRI/EPSRC between the Universities of Edinburgh and Lancaster. Exploring how individuals make sense of personal data management.
It was created by Ruth Catlow, DECAL@Furtherfield in collaboration with Kate Genevieve, chroma.space, Prof. Chris Speed, Dr Kruakae Pothong, Billy Dixon and Dr Evan Morgan from the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh.
