Re-writing classic novels for the password protection generation

This was one of a number of pieces I created for an exhibition called Private-i, in association with the London Design Festival.

Curated by data design agency Signal Noise, the event looked at how hard it was to protect your privacy in a digital world. Most of the pieces were pretty heavy on coding, algorithms and all that sort of palaver, so I did something that went back to basics.

You know, a time when hackers attacked with swords not DDoS, when code was something you whispered, and a password was exactly as it sounded: a word that let you pass.

This was my take on classic literature with a bit of digital paranoia thrown in.

(With many, many apologies to J. R. R. Tolkien.)
