Right to Be Forgotten
Design Research  –  2019

Inspired by GDPR's Right to Erasure, which allows individuals to request data removal, this exploration questions its feasibility. While the legislation seems empowering, concerns arise regarding data interconnectedness, trust in organizations, and the permanence of digital footprints. Contrary to the evocative title, "Right to Be Forgotten," the process involves more nuanced considerations, suggesting limited control over data collection and removal. The burden falls on individuals to initiate erasure requests, with little transparency on what data is retained or deleted. This raises doubts about achieving true anonymity in the digital age, prompting reflection on preventive measures rather than reactive solutions.
