Whether we give it any degree of thought at all, our personal information is being aggressively data-mined by increasingly sophisticated algorithms. The amaWal Cube, expressed in part by the enormous quantity of cardboard packaging inundating our lives, questions what could happen if powerful tech and e-commerce giants, in their relentless pursuit of our data, become too powerful. Who would be in control then?

About the artist
About the artist

Anne Winter
Scarborough, ON

Anne Winter is a self-described urbanist with a particular interest in how the design of cities impacts daily life. She is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design and Ryerson University where she obtained a degree in interior design and a certificate in architectural technology. Using a wide variety of building materials in the construction of her work, Anne delves into topics such as density, transit and heritage preservation; more recently isolation and loneliness as experienced by a growing number of people as we transition from a manufacturing-based economy to a knowledge-based economy.
Anne considers each piece of work to be a chapter in an ongoing story that examines and interprets issues that cities face. It is a story she began some thirty years ago with observations about urban design that were of interest then. Some of those issues are still relevant today.
