The Crypto Design Challenge is an open call to emerging designers and artists all over the world to help reshape the dominant picture of the deep web. The aim was to dive into the Deep Web, to decrypt its contents, and explore how these hidden infrastructures could be empowering, hospitable, and inspiring.
As part of the Citizen Data Lab together with Ingrid Woudwijk and Sabine Niederer I co-produced the event. This includes a class at Artez, a Deep Web Salon and the Crypto Design Challenge Award ceremony at Paradiso Amsterdam.
