Privacy has been a hot topic recently. We all know now that using all the free tools that the social media and the internet gives comes at a price. Our privacy. To counteract this phenomena, Adam Harvey, an artist and design professor at the School of Visual Arts, created a stealth wear fashion line that reduces a person’s thermal footprint. In theory, this limits one’s visibility to aerial surveillance vehicles employing heat-imaging cameras to track people on the ground.
It’s interesting to see how the intrusive nature of our world is affecting our defence mechanisms. I wonder what’s next; hidden passages, and underground living spaces?
