With Knowsy, I have done research on the use of personal data that we release easily on the Internet. I make data tangible by punching it out on music box cards and thus converted into music that you can play through an old music box. On the backside of the music card, a pattern emerges. With this pattern, I create artworks that are printed on tableware. I have chosen tableware because it is a delicate product. You handle it with care. This is a metaphor for how you should deal with your own data.

If you want to order your own print or tableware, you can go the website where I only ask you to grant permission for using your Facebook data, and this data will be converted into a personal 'handle with care' object.
