Imagine that in the future Netflix will be able to use a heart rate monitor in your smartwatch to know what mood you are in? Do you want a tailor-made service, to suit your mood and state of mind, or would you rather keep your emotions to yourself? And what does it mean for our privacy? Who does your emotional data actually belong to? These questions and more are central in We Know How You Feel during the Dutch Design Week from 21 to 29 October 2017. In this project, VPRO Medialab researches how wearable technology can play a role in making and consuming of media. One of the components of We Know How You Feel is this debate night.
