Data & the making of Meaning “Privacy, privacy; the new American obsession: espoused as the most fundamental of rights, marketed as the most desirable of commodities, and pronounced dead twice a week” The "right to be left alone"? Far from disappearing, it's exploding. It's the essence of modern American architecture, landscape, transportation, communication, and mainstream political philosophy.

What data cannot be shared within the current art and technological infrastructure?
