The project „Data Dump“ addresses the resource consumption of digital data waste. Due to seemingly infinite space in cloud storage and for convenience, data is kept. In a speculative approach, it is proposed to translate deleted data to a physical landfill. An interactive dataviz system translates deleted personal data into physical structures from carbonised material. Data clouds become petrified data dumps.
