I am not a Hacktivist, but rather an artist. I believe the responsibility of great art is to raise more questions than answers. This video art series is an attempt to broaden the dialog surrounding the beliefs and methods of the group Anonymous; and the intersection of our own personal freedoms, private vs. public information, and the future of Neutrality on the Internet. This video was specifically uploaded and distributed via the internet on March 1st 2012, the exact day that Google launches its new Privacy policy, allowing them to harvest and sell more of your private data. Again, in an effort to raise questions surrounding how, why and to what extent is your personal data is being mined.

Anonymous has carefully crafted an aesthetic that surrounds their message. I have absorbed the aesthetic and manipulated it. In an attempt to enhance their aesthetic I created several unique video sculptures to incorporate into the film. The film also incorporates video projection mapping, video optics, video sculptures embedded with infrared surveillance cameras, CCTV system, LCD screens, and L.E.D's. I envision the exhibition of this project as an immersive multi-channel video installation with physical video sculpture components.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surveillance

"Your every action is being recorded, every click of your mouse being monitored.
You are being surveilanced.You are helping them to surveillance others.
They are making record profits off your human nature, your need to share photos with family, connect with friends, and reveal your dreams.
Does it bother you that your personal data is bought and sold?
They do not want you to have anonymity.
You are not Anonymous." [dNASAb]

BELOW IS AN ACTUAL MESSAGE FROM ANONYMOUS PERTAINING FACEBOOK USERS______

Attention citizens of the world,
We wish to get your attention, hoping you heed the warnings as follows: Your medium of communication you all so dearly adore will be destroyed. If you are a willing hacktivist or a guy who just wants to protect the freedom of information then join the cause and kill facebook for the sake of your own privacy.

Facebook has been selling information to government agencies and giving clandestine access to information security firms so that they can spy on people from all around the world. Some of these so-called whitehat infosec firms are working for authoritarian governments, such as those of Egypt and Syria.

Everything you do on Facebook stays on Facebook regardless of your "privacy" settings, and deleting your account is impossible, even if you "delete" your account, all your personal info stays on Facebook and can be recovered at any time. Changing the privacy settings to make your Facebook account more "private" is also a delusion. Facebook knows more about you than your family.

You cannot hide from the reality in which you, the people of the internet, live in. Facebook is the opposite of the Antisec cause. You are not safe from them nor from any government. One day you will look back on this and realise what we have done here is right, you will thank the rulers of the internet, we are not harming you but saving you.

The riots are underway. It is not a battle over the future of privacy and publicity. It is a battle for choice and informed consent. It's unfolding because people are being raped, tickled, molested, and confused into doing things where they don't understand the consequences. Facebook keeps saying that it gives users choices, but that is completely false. It gives users the illusion of and hides the details away from them "for their own good" while they then make millions off of you. When a service is "free," it really means they're making money off of you and your information.

Think for a while and prepare for a day that will go down in history. November 5 2011, #opfacebook . Engaged.
This is our world now. We exist without nationality, without religious bias. We have the right to not be surveilled, not be stalked, and not be used for profit. We have the right to not live as slaves.

We are anonymous
We are legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Expect us
