April: Privacy

April: Privacy

Posted by Emma Stevenson on

Surveillance is the business model of the internet.

About the Collection:

Google knows what you're looking for. Facebook knows what you like. Targeted ad's are reflective of conversations you've had in the privacy of your home. Sharing is the norm, and secrecy is out. But what is the psychological and cultural fallout from the end of privacy?

Our first book consciously plays with the idea of history vs the way it is told by deliberately handing marginalized communities control over their own images by making them their own. Our second book takes a deep dive into what privacy really means with the rapid advancement of technology in the 21st century. The final book in this collection is a startling look at the scary realities of what really is private.
