Visualising Machinic Surveillance

Steve Mann sends his greetings from headquarters in Silicon Valley California and at Stanford University in California where he just did some veillametrics:

V- cool pictures that perhaps might help improve human-machine understanding/empathy in the field of surveillance (as humans start to appreciate what machines are doing/seeing)?

  1. Beyond looking like great fun (or because of), it seems to me there is real educational value in this kind of tech. Learning about sur/veillance does not have to be drab, difficult, theoretical or paternalistic. Time and again in multiple fields of inquiry we learn that top-down negative messages do not work if you want to raise awareness, ask people to question what is taking place around them or change behaviour.

    @Ronan, an interesting one for future art projects?
