For more information see the exhibition description and links below:

Enter PRIMITIVE Jan 17 for Privacy Mode, an unveiling of new counter surveillance

fashions from New York-based artist Adam Harvey.

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.


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.

Exhibition // January 18th – 31st.

In Privacy We Trust,

Adam Harvey /
