Evade Technology's Gaze With Counter Surveillance Fashion

Evade Technology's Gaze With Counter Surveillance Fashion

If you’re paranoid about being spotted from above by roaming drones should they come to invade our skies, then you’re probably going to need some kind of anti-spy clothing to shield you from their machine gaze.

In a new exhibition called Stealth Wear: New Designs For Counter Surveillance at Primitive London, NYC artist Adam Harvey—who previously came up with ways to style yourself to evade facial-recognition software with his CV Dazzle—will explore the idea of anti-surveillance fashion in collaboration with fashion designer Johanna Bloomfield.

The show will feature a range of wearables that could help you go undetected by the machines that watch over us. The clothing on show will feature an anti-drone hoodie and anti-drone scarf, which work by blocking thermal imaging technology which can be used by drones to spot their human prey. If you’re traveling abroad you could check out their XX-shirt which protects the wearer’s heart from X-rays and if you need to shut down your phone in a hurry then look no further than the Off Pocket, “an anti-phone accessory that allows you to instantly zero out your phone’s signal.”

The exhibition will take place January 18th-31st in London with additional support from Tank Magazine.
