'Perfect Citizen' is a satirical work, addressing the idea of a social credit system. In today’s society information is the primary currency. Our every move is digitised and converted into data. The rise of social media only served to significantly accelerate these trends. Centralised digital platforms enable easier tracking, where 'gamification' builds into surveillance. The idea of a social credit system fosters a public opinion environment, leading to a loss of agency and public shaming.
In this project I explore different scenarios. I look at whether this phenomenon potentiates a culture of honesty and safety, or a society of deceit through representation and conformity.
