(Dis)closed Data

(Dis)closed Data publishes information about the PRISM surveillance program, kept secret until 2013, when it was released by Edward Snowden. PRISM included data from several European Union countries (including Portugal) and was frequently accused of violating users' privacy.

(Dis)closed Data aims at editing and communicating PRISM’s contents, pushing them from a hidden to a readable or communicable dimension — including books, scientific articles, as well as documents published by Snowden. The project also intends to establish an analogy between PRISM and personal information that platforms like Facebook and Google disclose to third parties. This analogy is expressed by the relations displayed in an interactive map, which establishes the association between documents and information, compiled and organized in the secondary pages.
