Forgot Your Password? (Berlin 123 Mousepad Edition), 2018

19 x 24 cm
Edition: 123

In recent years, Internet platforms have increasingly experienced security problems. Insufficiently protected databases have been hacked with the goal of retrieving large amounts of user data. The data - email addresses and passwords - were then traded on the darknet or hidden forums. The value of the data from these breaches has since diminished and today much of it can be found on the open Internet. Forgot your password? (Berlin 123 Mousepad Edition) displays a collection of user passwords containing 'Berlin' on a mousepad. The work is part of a series of works, mostly shown in public space in cities around the world, whereby the content changes according to the location.

"Forgot Your Password? (Berlin 123 Mousepad Edition)" was part of Gallery.Delivery | Berlin 2018.
