It is the future. A future stuck in a retro feedback loop.

Nothing exists outside of the spectacle, everything is crowd sourced and data is king.

Citizens engage in market research, consumer games, even medical testing and biomonitoring to harvest data in exchange for VeriLikon credits which can also be earned by participating in labour. Credits constitute a citizens score that can be exchanged for goods and services.

The VeriLikon is a simple numerical interaction calculated by mining citizens personal biometric data; including heart rates and neural activity.

Public service announcements located around the building keep citizens updated on the very best ways to self-manage their VeriLikon score and strive towards being the best they can be. Sharing increases scores and high scoring citizens are rewarded.

The VeriLikon enables our bodies to set us free. We embrace equality, difference and compliance to enable citizens to achieve self-actualisation.

Ensure you visit the VeriLikon Homestead in Studio 26 on the ground floor.
