How is privacy being redefined in the new digital era of ubiquitous information and constant surveillance? The exhibition Connections (through Sept. 13) was conceived from research done by the Sociable Media Group at the MIT Media Lab, and includes the dynamic new installation, Metropath(ologies). In a world overflowing with information and non-stop communication this modular and interactive exhibition poses the question of how people's notions of privacy have changed the context of hyper-connected and hyper-aware real and virtual spaces. Where is the line between privacy and transparency in this new age? How have these issues affected the way people live in and think about their communities?
