Stealth Wear, Clothes for a rEVOLution

Some of this is pretty cool stuff: http://ahprojects.com/projects/stealth-wear

Statement

Building off previous work with CV Dazzle, camouflage from face detection, Stealth Wear continues to explore the aesthetics of privacy and the potential for fashion to challenge authoritarian surveillance.

Presented by Primitive at Tank Magazine are a suite of new designs, made in collaboration with NYC fashion designer Johanna Bloomfield, that tackle some of the most pressing and sophisticated forms of surveillance today. The ready-to-wear countersurveillance solutions include a series of ‘Anti-Drone’ garments and the Off Pocket, an anti-phone accessory that allows you to instantly zero out your phone’s signal.

Collectively, Stealth Wear is a vision for fashion that addresses the rise of surveillance, the power of those who surveil, and the growing need to exert control over what we are slowly losing, our privacy.

In Privacy We Trust,
Adam Harvey

Won't my chainmail helmet

protect me against thermal imaging?

I mean, not that it's very attractive, but I guess I could spring for the anti-drone hoodie.

But then what would I do with my helmet? Just wear it to Renaissance festivals?! :(

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
