A collaboration with Gasag Kunstpreiz artist Nik Nowak exploring issues of data privacy in 21st century society. This terminal, exhibited during Berlin Art Week, allowed visitors to sign up for a “post-mortem data deletion service”. VV created a custom application interface with a design that mimics the historic DOS operating system, to reference a nostalgia for a time when data deletion was as simple as erasing something from a disk. Design elements were entirely generated with ascii drawing characters, also in the style of older software design.
