What happens when we increasingly rely on social media and the web for nearly all our information? What information do we see, and what do we miss? How do we know if a picture or a tweet is genuine or truthful? The Glass Room Misinformation Edition explores what misinformation is, why it’s shared and how it spreads. Find out how we, the individual users, take part through our many clicks, likes and shares.
In this digital exhibition we present Tactical Tech's newest edition of The Glass Room Community Edition, which explores misinformation in all its forms. In this exhibition you can explore how social media and the web have changed the way we read information and react to it. Find out about the new types of influencers, the new and old tactics they use, and the role we the users and consumers play in the way information flows.
All exhibits are presented through a series of animations, visualisations and apps that can be experienced on desktop and mobile. We invite you to take a deep dive beyond your screen, and into the world of deepfakes, misinformation, design strategies and profiling
