DLeb develops within the matrix of a collective science fiction as an experimental writing project through multi-actor/actant input.

It introduces the capacity for an individual to broker their own data, through smart contracts, facilitated via blockchain, and asks what new values, if any, might be attributed as a result.  


As such, it introduces the possibility of considering digital citizenship via the blockchain, and the contractual instruments that might accommodate this, with an urgency that attempts to think through these ideas fully enmeshed within the tensions of the libidinal and political economy of today.


DLeb takes it’s name from the situation that a de-Leb (a dead celebrity) - typically enjoys more data choice from beyond the grave - i.e. they have more agency over the deployment of their data: name, image, the very idea of them, and the products that they may be associated with - than those still living. developed from the exhibition A Throw of the Dice will Never Abolish Chance, with audio from the Thinking Through the Block workshops.  There are several rooms and offsite links that you can reach via clicking the #sturtevantharinghashtag face, and the crypto key.  Some of these will take you to a room that shows the exhibition and emulates the #sturtevantharinghashtag that was shown at Banner Repeater during the exhibition period, dynamically replicating, in this instance, until you manage to escape the page or until it fills the page bombing the website.
