Stealth ware - New designs for counter surveillance
(Nanowerk News) Stealth Wear from New York-based artist Adam Harvey is a collection of counter surveillance garments and accessories that explores the aesthetics of privacy and the potential for fashion to challenge authoritarian surveillance.
Hosted by TANK magazine and presented by PRIMITIVE London, the opening reception of this exhibition is on January 17, 2013 at TANK (91-93, Great Portland Street London W1W 7NX). RSVP here.
Building off previous work with CV Dazzle, camouflage from face detection, Privacy Mode continues to explore the aesthetics of privacy and the potential for fashion to challenge authoritarian surveillance. Presented by PRIMITIVE at TANK MAGAZINE HQ will be 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.
