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.
