Mass surveillance is the reality of living in 2019. And you probably know that, in a general way. But how exactly are you being watched, what can you do about it, and how did things come to be like this?
To answer these questions, we are developing a people's guide to surveillance: a hands-on introduction to identifying how you're being watched in daily life, and by whom.
The guide comprises several parts:
A walking tour of surveillance infrastructure in downtown Seattle: find the itinerary here
A toolkit for community members to use to facilitate their own surveillance demystification workshops: coming soon
Guided countersurveillance workshops for community members
Please note that our work is in early stages and actively being developed.
For updates on our toolkit, workshop, and opportunities to get involved, join our mailing list.
coveillance is a collective of technologists, organizers, and designers who employ arts-based approaches to demystify surveillance and build communal counterpower. You can reach us by email.
We are developing our materials in collaboration with the ACLU of Washington. Our work is supported by the Center for Arts, Design + Social Research. Our zine and posters were designed by Micah Epstein.
Please get in touch if you're interested in collaborating.
