Bradley Manning, Wikileaks and the Snowden/ PRISM revelations pulled back the curtain on the specific workings of a technology based surveillance culture that continues to expand globally every day with significant societal implications.
This panel, comprised of leading technologists, cultural provocateurs and thinkers will examine these issues by using their individual projects as jumping off points.
-Kyle McDonald raised headlines and was investigated by the Secret Service for his Apple store hack that took photos of people as they used the in-store computers.
-Adam Harvey generated worldwide coverage for garments created from nickel-metalized fabric designed to stop IR-detection by thermal cameras, including drone surveillance.
-Heather Dewey-Hagborg sparked controversy when she created 3D portraits of people from discarded genetic material left in public places.
All panelists hacked the modern surveillance state and their experiences will guide our discussion.
