Noisebridge is proud to present Anti/Surveillance Fashion Show at the upcoming [Faire] in San Mateo. Anti/Surveillance is a runway show exploring the uses of wearables for surveillance, and for hiding from surveillance. We are currently accepting submissions for participation in the show.

Constantly under the lens of the camera, fashion is a natural form in which to explore the relationship between surveillance and culture. How are we watched? How do we watch? How do we present ourselves to the eyes of the world? At [Faire] 2010, May 22-23, we will be presenting Anti/Surveillance, a runway show that explores the role of and our relationship with surveillance in our society.

We are looking for submissions covering the range from playful to practical. Do you make accessories that blind CCTV cameras with IR LEDs? Have you imagined makeup that will thwart face detection? Ever built an invisibility coat? Or maybe you just like to put QR codes on all your clothing to make it easier for people to track you.

If you are interested in showing wearable work that explores the boundaries of surveillance please submit your work to be included in Anti/Surveillance Fashion Show.

To submit your project, please send the following information to fashion@synthesize.us as soon as possible:

  • a photo or short video of your project, or a link to a URL with photo(s) or video(s)
  • a few sentences describing your project and how it relates to surveillance
  • how the item is worn on the body, and any physical restrictions on the model wearing it
  • any special requirements for care or use of the item

May 7th, 2010: Last date to submit work for inclusion.

May 9th, 2010: Notice of acceptance will be sent out no later than end of day.
