Blank is a lived experience created through a mobile application. This project aims to raise awareness about privacy issues. Blank functions on two different layers. The surface which appears to be a game where people have to log in to Facebook to start playing. The second layer it functions on is the core of this project. Users logging into their social media accounts to play the game available on the app, have their personal information collected. After the game is over, users are prompted with their score and a print button. Tapping the print button prints out a certificate from a candid printer with the user’s personal information, including but not limited to their e-mail, password, location, and picture. The purpose of the candid printer and the certificate is to shock the user. This shock factor is a crude experience which allows this project to raise awareness about privacy issues.

This record describes an artistic or creative work which was prepared as part of a course of study at the American University of Cairo. The creators retain all rights to the original artistic or creative works described herein.
This project is part of “ Zoom in Keda- Fourth Graduating Class of Graphic Design Students-The American University in Cairo – Class 2018-2019” catalog. Several global cities have acquired an international rep¬utation as design education hubs by acknowledging the importance of education planning and early learning ex¬periences through providing a structured career path and aligning design skills with the economy’s various needs. Our 8 years old Graphic Design program at the Ameri¬can University in Cairo aims to follow the same strategy, mentoring students on how to channel their creativity and knowledge into reshaping their communities, leaving a positive imprint on their society. Four design segments have been commonly defined in the MENA region’s design sector; namely: Graphic Design, Fashion Design, Interior Design, and Industrial/Product Design. The title for the fourth design seniors show was “Zoom in Keda “. As with the previous 3 exhibitions, the title builds on the graphic design language in Egyptian vernacular cul¬ture. “Zoom in Keda” is a commonly used phrase in the de¬sign field, told when one wishes to examine the micro de¬tails of a design on screen. The exhibition was held at the AUC Sharjah Art Gallery on December 2nd, 2018, where bachelor projects completed by the fourth graduating class of Graphic Design students were displayed.
