Abstract:

  • We propose a panel discussion on surveillance versus surveillance and critiques of both of these opposing viewpoints by artists, scientists, theoreticians and inventors in the wake of global terrorism, media frenzy and government witch hunting. We propose elucidating both the reality of terror as well as the fabrication of its reality and all technologies that assist these processes. We will present strategies and preliminary responses to current surveillance issues and proposals, especially as they relate to surveillance in the Anthrax Age (mass decontamination, large-scale information collection, population control, quarantine, triage biometrics and mandatory medicinal control). The following submission reflects three reactions to this situation.
