A disruptive tech store with nothing for sale. Instead, it challenges you to reconsider the technologies you use every day, how much they reveal about you, and what choices you can make in our quantified society. 💻 📱
The Glass Room is a pop-up tech store with a twist. At first glance, it offers the latest in shiny digital consumer products, such as the newest tablet, fitness tracker or facial recognition software. But as you go inside, you’ll find there is nothing for sale.
Instead, as you look closer at the ‘products’ on display, you’ll see that they are playfully and provocatively selected to turn the technologies we all use on their head. The artworks, design pieces, and ‘Ingenius’ staff welcome you to take a look behind the screens into the hidden world of what happens to your data. Dig deeper into how much we reveal about ourselves!
The Glass Room, 69-71 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0NE

Visitors to The O2 will be treated to an unexpected exhibition, as a group of young artists take over the space outside London’s iconic music and entertainment venue to showcase their talent. 18 graffiti artists, street artists and fine artists have been donated space by The O2, who wanted to offer young people somewhere to express themselves. The exhibition, a collaboration between somewhereto_ and The Graffiti Life Company, will run for three months with the artists on display rotating each fortnight.
