Digital paranoia is a by-product of the 21st century, a result of the adjustment period many are experiencing as they are inviting new technologies into their day-to-day lives. With regards to this, one big anxiety for many users has been the issue of privacy and security. Katja Trinkwalder and Pia-Marie Stute attempt to address these issues of digital paranoia with a series of design-forward objects that "use fake data to stop your devices spying on you."
Embracing surveillance and data security, this project is dubbed 'Accessories For The Paranoid.' The clever series of objects generate fake data to skew the digital profiles of the users.
In an age where smart technology envelopes us, digital paranoia-alleviating products attempt to bring the balance back.
