Through a miniature demo of the Cached experience, we will explore how parts of our digital self can be constructed and used with the help of psychographic algorithms. We will run a brief hands-on exercise in which participants will prototype ideas tackling issues of data collection and digital profiling.
The scope of the workshop is to further increase individual and group knowledge regarding the current capabilities of social media algorithms, and the importance of personal data and metadata. The practical exercise will help identify daily physical encounters with data collection algorithms and engage with them creatively.

Vytas is a designer and researcher, fascinated by the visual and social dissonances that rapidly developing technologies generate in our boring domestic mundane.
Joana and Vytas are members of the Cached Collective, an international group of creatives dedicated to exploring how technology influences our individual lived realities. Our interests delve into data, algorithmic complexity, and obscure infrastructure, especially focusing on how these affect the individual.
