Art a by-product of video games

In this blog series I’ve spoken plenty about surveillance, and the prevalence of surveillance culture in our society. Recently I stumbled upon this feature by David Chandler on Kill Screen. And its sentiments deserve all the attention.

The Five Eyes are watching you!

Every time I use the internet, I sit there paranoid thinking...they could be watching me; the five eyes are watching me! Scary thoughts ran through my mind after attending a seminar at my university (Rhodes University) about Cyber Security and Digital Surveillance by guest lecturer Mindy McAdams. I kept questioning how ‘safe’ I am on the internet. Apparently those of us who care are a minority.

A camera on every corner

Like any self-respecting journalist-to-be, I am of the opinion that privacy is important. I mean, what kind of grade could you hope to get, saying otherwise? But what if you were mugged? What if you were stabbed or held at gunpoint? You would want some justice. So what if, within minutes, the police could identify the criminal? Or, for example, catch the men who placed the bomb at the Boston marathon last year. Would you be so anti-Orwellian then?
