Building off previous work with CV Dazzle, camouflage from face detection, Privacy Mode by Adam Harvey continues to explore the aesthetics of privacy and the potential for fashion to challenge authoritarian surveillance. A suite of new designs, made in collaboration with NYC fashion designer Johanna Bloomfield, that tackle some of the most pressing and sophisticated forms of surveillance today. Including:
The anti-drone hoodie and anti-drone scarf: garments designed to thwart thermal imaging, a technology used widely by UAVs.
The XX-shirt: a x-ray shielding print in the shape of a heart, that protects your heart from x-ray radiation
And the Off Pocket: an anti-phone accessory that allows you to instantly zero out your phone’s signal
Accompanying each project will be videos and tests revealing the process behind each technology and counter technology.

“FASTCOM creates a secure cellular bubble that accommodates secret-level and below communications in even the most austere tactical environments.
Our complete, end-to-end mobile communications solution is powered by unmanned aircraft equipped with FASTCOM external pods. The aircraft communicates with and delivers aircraft telemetry to the battlespace network, including mission radios and satellite communications backhaul equipment.
In addition, the pod-equipped unmanned aircraft provides network users direct access to intelligence sources.
Users can be added or removed quickly from the cellular network as needed.
Once on the network, users can communicate with each other or utilize their smart phone’s various applications. For example, our FASTCOM solution employs smart phones equipped with the Overwatch SoldierEyes™ suite of command, control, intelligence, support and situational awareness software applications.”

PhotoBot by Tommy Dykes is an alternative to the ‘point and shoot’ photography, building on people’s desire and passion to document aspects of their lives by taking and sharing photos online.  Using ultrasonic sound the product detects the location of people within the vicinity and then automatically takes a photo of them.  This automation allows people to enjoy an occasion, such as a party, in the knowledge that the occasion is being documented photographically without the need for them to do it themselves.

The “disposition matrix” has been developed and will be overseen by the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC). One of its purposes is “to augment” the “separate but overlapping kill lists” maintained by the CIA and the Pentagon: to serve, in other words, as the centralized clearinghouse for determining who will be executed without due process based upon how one fits into the executive branch’s “matrix”. As Miller describes it, it is “a single, continually evolving database” which includes “biographies, locations, known associates and affiliated organizations” as well as “strategies for taking targets down, including extradition requests, capture operations and drone patrols”. This analytical system that determines people’s “disposition” will undoubtedly be kept completely secret.
