Welcome Mr. Mayfield
The sharing of data is becoming more understood and valuable. It now somewhat functions as a currency. But how personal could this data trading system become? The idea of ‘selling your own body’ has been around long before any currency that exists now. This world rides on the roles of the viewer and performer constantly interchanging. As the number of viewers increases, so does the performers income.
When placed into everyday life would you perform to pay for your groceries? How much would you reveal in order to put on a viral show and earn your credit? Would you survive in a world where the only thing you own is your body?
