My blog is about me and my reactions to the ways in which the contemporary world thinks about information and data.
When I first left uni, I found a practicum opportunity working to connect Indigenous Australians with their stories in government records. This made me aware of how powerful information can be. I learnt from Loris Williams that the intermediary delivering the information can often be as important as the content itself.
Much time has passed since then but the focus of my work remains at the intersection between openness and transparency and the need for privacy. How we long to explore, rejoice and be awe inspired by the dazzling array of information objects we are presented with but at the same time fear opening Pandora’s box.
