Accessories for the Paranoid uses fake data to stop your devices spying on you

Katja Trinkwalder and Pia-Marie Stute have designed a series of add-on accessories for those who are concerned about surveillance and their data security.

The project, called Accessories For The Paranoid, explores an alternative approach to data security through four different “parasitic” objects.

These include a webcam that projects fabricated scenes and a button that generates fake online data.

These objects work to block or thwart the collection of people’s user information in different ways by generating fake data to blur their digital profiles, hiding users’ true data identities behind “a veil of fictive information”.
