Keyboards Need Space
Cybersecurity and privacy is framed by our relationship with technology. I wanted to show this by giving the keyboard a voice.
Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)
To give the keyboard a voice and some words I tried to make it look a little like a face (hoping paradolia works here). The keyboard is our main interface to the digital world, but it is a little unloved. The words express it's resentment, it's knowledge of your secrets and it's neediness (we feed the machine). There is also a class of keyboard based attacks - emissions detection, keystroke loggers, typing speed and key wear - so they are not beyond giving up their secrets. Finally there is a sub-message around stepping away from technology and either meeting or talking. The anthropomorphistic voice of inanimate objects is device used by PG Wodehouse and Douglas Adams to great effect - especially if they are installed with Genuine People Personality.

Variation on the theme above. Keyboard group therapy. Slightly less plaintive. Tried to hold on to the idea of letting the text make a face.
