Tally was conceived in 2010 during a DAAD fellowship in Berlin, Germany. After many experimental versions, the final project was produced by Sneakaway Studio (Joelle Dietrick and Owen Mundy) and launched officially in 2021. This work would not be possible without significant contributions from the several institutions below, especially Davidson College where we were given financial support and curricular flexibility to mix in the next generation’s ideas about data privacy. Read on for individual project credits.
