Invisible Islands


Invisible Islands is a project by Sébastien Pierre.

Worldwide, privacy is challenged while our dependency on networks is increasing. Governments and corporations are massively harvesting personal data. Citizens need to take back some control to preserve freedom of information.

Based on the simple idea of tying information to the physical space, Invisible Islands looks at how citizens can use inexpensive hardware and wireless networks to create information islands that allow to openly share information while preserving privacy.

Disconnected from the Internet, the information available in each Island is only access through QR codes displayed in the public space, thus creating a naturally sheltered medium for the community to share and interact in the public space.

Invisible Islands is part of Human Futures, developed with the support of CAVI, Aarhus University, and Kunsthal Aarhus.
