At a time when social networks rhyme with accessibility and globalization, internet-goers are piecing together a complex and singular image of themselves better known as their digital identity. Carrousel is an online-based plug-in that gathers, studies and shares data. Upon installation, the application retrieves and stores all user data from an array of sites. Once done, users can better monitor how their identity is used and diffused. Carrousel aims at creating an accountable, open and innovative social network.
Carrousel is one of 15 projects on display at Design(s), l’expo 2012.
