I'm a maker from the US. Did glass/sculpture 15 yrs. Amiga 500 gateway drug 2 software UI/UX design. ‘04 added back analog making because it's a superset of the digital world. Work 2 create instants where images/objects can spring into being.
3) Work statement:
To this maker, surveillance is a bargain with the devil. Think 1984- a lot of which actually happened by the year 1984 and is still happening as it permeates our social DNA. Erosion of the individual is part of that.
Closer to home, being on Ello is opting-in to surveillance on many levels. To do so is more difficult for some than others. For there're those who see the doughnut, those who see the hole, and those who aren't even looking. When no one can remember what it was like without it... problem solved.
