DATAPRINT: THE INSTALLATION is the first fully produced version of DATAPRINT, a series of projects that blend theater, music, dance, and multimedia to invite audiences to examine the impact of their online fingerprint, as well as question the ethics of data privacy.

Through an interactive multimedia installation that collects, processes, and distills real-time data generated in their public surroundings, visitors are offered the choice to personalize their experience by composing an avatar based on their virtual habits, witnessing a visual representation of their online conduct as they enter a stunning world of dynamic data. The installation is accompanied by a dance piece that is performed once every hour. Inspired by the data flow, it adds a poetic reflection to the issues raised and enables visitors to perceive their invisible yet constantly evolving online persona.

DATAPRINT: THE INSTALLATION premiered simultaneously at The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose CA (later The Tech Interactive) and the Cubbon Park Metro Station in Bangalore, the two cities at the heart of the USA and India silicon valleys, to spur the dialogue about online privacy and our increasingly data-driven society in two key locations of the technology sector.

Presented at The Tech Museum of Innovation, San Jose, CA, USA and Cubbon Park Metro Station, Bangalore, India on September 22 & 23, 2018.

The second initiative of DATAPRINT is an intimate experience, part-performance and part-real life game, in which audiences are invited to immerse themselves in a fictional futuristic world where data is the rule of law. The project is created by David Bengali, Jonathan Camuzeaux, Simón Adinia Hanukai, Nikki Holck, David Kuelz, and Antoine Vanel // Blindsp0t. This second initiative is being developed in Nantes (France), in Bangalore (India), in the San Francisco Bay Area (USA), and virtually, as part of the CHIMÈRES residency program of artistic research and production, initiated by the French Ministry of Culture and administered by le lieu unique (LU), Nantes’ state-funded theater, and Théâtre Nouvelle Génération (TNG), Centre dramatique national de Lyon. DATAPRINT has also received support from the Dispositif pour la Création Artistique Multimédia et Numérique (DICRéAM), the French National Center for Cinema's aid to multimedia and digital artistic creation, and specifically from DICRéAM's development fund which is geared towards unique artistic intentions that focus on experimental, collaborative, participatory, and transdisciplinary work.
