Onion Routing AR Walking TOR was a participatory interpretation of the inner workings of onion routing and the TOR browser using augmented reality and location-based virtual markers. We took two groups of 15-20 people on two tours during the Radical Networks Conference on October 20th - 21st, 2017; each group located a series of geolocated 3D models representing global servers as waypoints around the Radical Networks venue forming a simulation of onion routing where each participant represented a programmatically routed data packet. Each route was randomly generated with each stop slowly decrypting a hidden message.
This AR Walking TOR was also shown as an installation at Ó̵̞͠O̸̮͠ͅP̷͔̊͝S̵̡̱̑.̵̻̯̏͘.̶̜́͛.̷͔̑ : Obfuscating Ownership: Privacy & Sousveillance Symposium at the University of Hertfordshire on December 10-11, 2018.
