Resisting Surveillance in Public Spaces
‘Low Tech Canvas Against High Tech Surveillance’ Session at MozFest
We encourage everyone to try out the low tech canvas against high tech surveillance for yourself by becoming a digital explorer of your own city or neighborhood and playing around with the low tech camouflage techniques and engage with practices of resistance. The session at MozFest will be a place to discuss all of your experiences, brainstorming ideas for improvement and ways to localize the guides for your local context.
To participate, the first-come, first-serve number of early birds ticket holders who register for this session will get the ‘low tech canvas against high tech surveillance’ kit sent to their homes (address provided upon session registration). If you are an early bird ticket holder, you will receive an email to register. The kit consists of all the materials you need to go on an urban safari, from our explorer guides, to emergency blankets that protect your body temperature from thermal cameras and LED light to break facial recognition algorithms. If you don’t get a kit – not to worry! Closer to the session timing, you can still download a kit and use items you have at home to participate in the session.
