Description

“If one would give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest man, I would find something in them to have him hanged.”

This quote is from Cardinal Richelieu, one of the most powerful man in the ranks of Louis XIII. He is said to have founded the first secret service in the world and controlled a vast network of spies throughout France. He censored the discussion of politics in public places and executed anyone who opposed him.

Surveillance is often defended by the motto “If you’ve got nothing to hide, you’ve got nothing to fear”. It has been described it as the “most common retort against privacy advocates.” It is a dangerous statement as it immediately infringes on our rights to privacy. A person might be doing something legal without thats said person wanting his/her actions to be surveilled.

In a society where privacy is at risk and waning, the power entitled to those in control of personal information (such as private messages, digital transactions, browser and location history) can be abused and damage freedom and the quality of life.

The piece is made with an encryption technology called “visual encryption”, which is a method to send information privately. Two shares of encrypted noise fields are made and when the two fields are superimposed they produce an image. The two prints are made of black and white split pixels arranged seemingly randomly across the surface of the posters, but when combined a message appears.
