The Internet makes it possible to rethink the way we handle money, one of the oldest known information systems. For example, online services like person-to-person lending allow people to directly invest their money in strangers without an intermediary. However, this requires new forms of security and trust in both technology and people.
This project explores how an actively curated identity representation could be used to communicate the trustworthiness of people, giving them more control over their online identity while guarding their privacy.
The main thesis paper describes the background and reasoning behind this project.
Supplemental texts were used at the exhibition alongside the interactive visualization.
