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.
WHERE: 91-93, Great Portland Street London W1W 7NX
WHEN: Private View // January 17th, 18:30 – 21:30.
