Introduction to Surveillance Technology & How to Avoid It

Anna Gudnason, Jiwon Shin

A easy to read zine that covers surveillance technologies for the general audience.



Privacy and security are important issues that many (the general public in particular) fail to fully comprehend mostly because the terminology can be too complicated, technical or just sound dry. Our aim with Introduction to Surveillance Series is to educate the mass public about these surveillance systems in order to allow people to protect their privacy better. We do this with simple diagrams and pictures to illustrate topics that can be complicated in nature. We provide analogies to encourage better understanding.

This zine series was done for our final project for Veillance class. While we understand ITP’s reasonings behind not putting similar projects in the same room, we believe in the case of these class projects for Veillance, each project from the class would go well together in the same room as each project compliments each other, building it up into a bigger whole (composed of separate parts). So we would like to request to be put in the same space as the other veillance projects. Thank You!
