Ministry of Measurement (2013) took place within London’s Barbican Centre for two weeks from 7th to 18th August 2013 as part of the Hack the Barbican festival. Re-purposing the venue’s gargantuan cloakroom area into a dystopian data collection bureau, the work examined our inherent discomfort about the hidden value institutions and companies place upon our data.

Ministry of Measurement was the inaugural project commissioned by the EU FP7 FET funded initiative ICT&Art Connect through partner Stromatolite on behalf of the European Commission.
