# Tally Tracker Explorer (Joelle Dietrick and Owen Mundy) Creative Residency conducted from August 4th, 2020 to October 31, 2020 to create a visualization uncovering the hidden web of trackers, bots, and data provenance as we skim the internet. Tally Tracker Explorer captures live data from [Tally Saves the Internet][1] and displays this data as a sea of avatars, each surrounded by small product monsters and attached to their unique data trails, colored to match their top marketing categories. Both Tally Saves the Internet and Tally Tracker Explorer’s core goal is to visualize the internet and its trackers in a way that makes the invisible (trackers) visible and the lingo familiar.
