Far exceeding our expectations, over 19,000 visitors came to The Glass Room London to find out about big data and how it is harvested, traded and sold every day. Following on from the exhibition in New York last year, The Glass Room London saw an even greater response to the issues we face as a society: issues of data collection, monopoly of power and diminishing privacy in our digital lives. A packed events programme broadened the dialogue surrounding the exhibition including talks from authors, lawyers, journalists, policy advocates, filmmakers and artists.

We’ll be following up with a detailed report including how the public reacted, footage from the talks and a wrap up of summary of the 19 days.
