The Quipu kit invites for reflecting on relations to data by knotting experiences of privacy and trust in regard to Menstruation and Fertility Tracking Apps (MFTAs). It is informed by the Incan tradition of Quipu (or Khipu), which are recording devices made of knotted cords to represent notations, numbers, or language. The kit includes a booklet with instructions, prompts, and a selection of materials that can be used for making knotted artefacts, inspired by Quipu knotting. These aim to explore the security and reliability of data.
