Description

Ottawa (de)tours: Monthly large group tour on SURVEILLANCE

What does surveillance mean to you? Does it evoke Snowden, closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, or google (and now facebook) listening in to your conversations? Who is watching us, and should we care?

$15/person. For more information: http://demo.ottawadetours.ca/tour/surveillance/

More details:

Interested in privacy, surveillance or anonymity? Introduced through the stories of various people that have come and (mainly) gone through our newsfeed in recent years - be they artists, journalists, as well as regular and more famous citizens - we examine surveillance, privacy and monitoring concepts in 21st century Canada. We start the tour in front of the original "speakers' corner" in front of CTV's building in the Byward Market, thinking about the evolution of what it means to be in the public eye; as we continue our stroll through the downtown core, we'll be on the lookout for instruments of surveillance, talk about tactics of obfuscation, and discuss what it means to be seen, to be invisible, and to be very closely watched.
