Data Dreams

Data Dreams is a design fiction project about the risks of computational thinking and data collection. We collectively wrote a fiction to build a world, then imagined ourselves as the hackers in our story. What would we build if we wanted to reclaim power over our ways of thinking? My model was a goggle headset. Plugging it into a hack port in your google home, it will download your data and convert it to binary code. When you put it on and go to sleep, it tracks your eye movements. When you are in REM, it uses LED strips to blink the binary code back to you and into your subconscious.
