Getting Intimate with invisible audiences, Mushon Zer-Aviv


Artist & Designer

of Ars Electronica fame





Who uses the Internet?

Who uses the street?

Who are the cultural leaders today?


Privacy & openness

not black & white

Information wants to be free != People wants to be free

There's a scale between private & public

Social media is performative

Not only communication, only presenting oneself

Hana Arendt quote on public spaces

enable people to understand the norms regulating society

let people express themselves & learn from the feedback of others

enable people to convert sayings or actions to "real" thru the others witnessing them

Danna Boyd quote on social networks as mediated publics

4 unique characteristics





all 4 leading to, Invisible Audiences, key factor in discussion on privacy

Example: chatroullete

Mediated publics?

No persistence

No searchability

No replicability

No Scale

and therefore, No Invisible Audiences

Ian Graham

Privacy isn't relevant in pre-technical/pre-democratic societies

Quote from Genesis

Adam & Eve hide from God, whose asks: Where are you?

i.e., Adam & Eve are afraid of invisible audiences

Is privacy for Terrorists only?

People say

I've got nothing to hide

Quote from Genesis

Noah son's see Noah drunk & naked after he saved the world, & tells about it to his brother

<hilarious image of naked Noah on his son's facebook wall>

Quote of Faucolt

The power of the penopticon is that in making the priosioner always visible, the power is enforced without being executed

walking is publishing


Urban planners, sociologists & technologists should now start designing new protocols that rethink & redesign public & mediated spaces


Twitter search technical constraints (e.g., you can't search history) rather do good by making it less content & more conversation


Negative example is Huxley's "Brave new world"
