Human Data Interaction (HDI) takes place within a data economy characterised by power imbalances that favour giant corporations that rely on deceptions comprising a form of privacy theatre. We present speculative design f(r)ictions as critical framing devices to help people engage with, reflect upon and understand obfuscated personal data processes, towards supporting their awareness and agency around personal data sharing. We discuss four concept designs we developed following workshop activities.
