Recently we can already access a network without stress by the Internet and the development of the device. Internet is becoming a part of the real world not separated society.On the other hand, in such situation, user has the risk that personal information is exploited unconsciously via a network(For instance  "taste" by the search and "time" when I accessed it, "a place" using the GPS, the information of "the body" from a health care apparatus).

  For such situation, I decided to produce an analog hacking device from Maker Culture and D.I.Y Spirit. this work presents it as means to protect the information of the private citizen.This work gives information irrelevant to an individual and is the device which can lower the purity of the information, by using i-Phone and Siri, and hacking interface physically.The mechanism is delayed by the sound Siri spoke and comes back to herself once more.Siri causes "howling of the information" by talking with herself past.The video artist of the 70s produced a work by technique called the feedback with the closed circuit system of the video.In this sense, this work is homage of the video art.In addition, this is a device exposing information exploitation, and it is it imitates a human act.There is not the body for a performance of Siri. And it is exaggerated, and performed by a ridiculous device.And this act is repeated like a Zen Koan Dialogue at on-line and an off-line boundary.Do Siri Dream of Big Data?
