Digital Me, Who Are You?

Digital Me is an online experience created for BBC Taster. It uses your computer screen, a webcam, your postcode, your Facebook login, your Twitter feed, semantic analysis, statistics, to thread a delicate path between creepy and revelatory, posing the question “What would it be like to have a private conversation with your public, digital self?”

This project was created before the Facebook – Cambridge Analytica data scandal, when accessing private data (with the express permission of its owner), was considerably easier.

Subsequent changes to the way Twitter and Facebook allow access to their data has broken the experience.
