Hush Hush Bar is a social practice installation that Dina Herring and I created for the Exploratorium’s After Dark: Dangerous Ideas. The instructions are simple: Take a look at your photos, texts, or social media posts and trade one for a drink at the bar. The catch: tell us why it’s dangerous and why you keep it.
The Hush Hush bar is loosely based on the Data Dollar Store by Kaspersky Lab in London. In our version we ask guests to not only give us their dangerous image for public view, but also to explain why they consider it dangerous.
