oday, human sociality is affected by devices subtly designed to program behaviors and profile citizens.
This book contains over 250 selected patents that the artist Paolo Cirio found by sifting through over 20,000 inventions he published on the website https://sociality.today. The artist organized the patents into chapters such as Discrimination, Polarization, Addiction, Deception, Targeting, Control, and Surveillance. With this artwork, Cirio exposes inventions that employ devious psychological and profiling tactics through artificial intelligence, algorithms, data mining, and user interfaces.
As artistic provocation, the Coloring Book of Technology for Social Manipulation proposes the cathartic, childlike exercise of coloring to both educate and inform through the visually rendered compositions of outlined flowcharts and patent titles.
