We Are The Device-Mark Niehus–Autsralia

We Are The Device is a poetry film that offers an impressionistic glimpse into a future where shifting privacy standards have gone unchecked to the point that it undermines one’s principles of privacy. The hope is that the film may prompt reflection on the rising concerns about privacy in the digital world. The film shows our citizen going about his daily business, finding it progressively difficult to navigate a world that is increasingly driven by commercial interest into how we live. Visual stimulation reduces imagination and promotes impulsive distraction. He is the target of the digital infrastructure designed to collect and extract information that is used by interested parties to manipulate his choices. The device has become omnipresent, unseen, every aspect of our protagonist is being monitored to the point where even his walk becomes an algorithm. It is a dark perspective hung on a menacing soundscape.
