14.Feb.08 FIRENZE [IT}: ATLAS OF THE FUTURE: visions of the scenarios to come
What are the key thoughts of reflection about tomorrow? Atlas of the Future offers us likely visual trajectories that project our day into forthcoming scenarios and patterns. The exhibit is an annotation of moving images which address key themes in social development and in our world studied through video clips and documentaries, the latter hailing from the archives of Festival dei Popoli. From Mexico to India, from the United States to Nigeria, from Israel to China, from Italy to the Congo to Russia, the works tell stories and utopias, imagine worlds and offer speculations for life in the future. A programme by Centre for Contemporary Culture Strozzina.

How to anonymise  (2003)
original documents provided by a data controller in compliance with the Data Protection Act (1998) UK

The “gold standard” of skillful execution was set by an institution whose approach was almost baroque - they delivered hard copies of each of the several hundred relevant frames from the timelapse camera, with third parties’ heads cut out, apparently with nail scissors.

Two documents had (accidentally?) slipped in between the printouts—one a letter from a junior employee tendering her resignation (was it connected with the beheading job?), and the other an ironic memo: And the good news —I enclose the £10 fee to be passed to the branch sundry income account. (Head of Security, internal communication 09/2003)
