In this discussion, we will consider how surveillance impacts communities and public discourse, and the way that dissent can thrive in a world under watch. We will talk about the human lives affected by surveillance and policing, focusing on communities in NYC and elsewhere. In this panel we will discuss strategies and tactics for activists and offer critical perspectives on solutions.
This event will have on-site CART (Communication Access Real-Time Translation) service thanks to our sponsor MailChimp.
Panelists: Kade Crockford, Ingrid Burrington, Bina Ahmad and Raven Rakia

Eyebeam's 2015 Annual Showcase will highlight innovative works produced at the organization throughout 2014.

It will also provide the public an opportunity to engage directly with the artists and creative technologists during a day of public conversation on Saturday, February 21st, 2015 (full schedule to be announced).
Opening Day: Saturday, September 6, 12pm - 5pm @ Governor's Island: House 15
Eyebeam artists are presenting work in an environment that feels as though it is from another era. Eyebeam Off-The-Grid, on Governors Island, is an exhibition to critically investigate cultural change and emergent technologies within a situation far outside the urban comfort zone of wired high-speed life. The island is without a dedicated internet connection or much cell phone coverage and is accessed only by ferries which run on the hour. It is the perfect place for Eyebeam to go unplugged!
