"One cannot go online today without eventually being asked to accept a set of so-called Terms of Service. These "terms" are actually legal contracts between the user and the online service provider, despite the fact that users never get a chance to negotiate their contents and can even be entirely unaware of their existence. Ticking the box, “I have read and agree to the Terms,” is one of the biggest lies on the web today.
In this project, I took the content of the “terms of service” of the leading online services that we use on a daily basis (Including Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Tinder, etc.) and I printed them on a standard A4 wide scroll with a standard legal contract font size and type. After printing these so-called terms, I hung the scrolls in the gallery at the academy and added the number of words and the time it takes to read each scroll. My main goal was to emphasize how small, helpless, and harmful we are against these giant corporates."
