Summary

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.

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 were a suite of new designs that tackle some of the most pressing and sophisticated forms of surveillance today. The countersurveillance solutions include a series of ‘Anti-Drone’ garments and the Off Pocket™, a privacy accessory that allows you to instantly zero out your phone’s signal.

FAQs

  • Where can I purchase items from Stealth Wear? The items are available to purchase at the Privacy Gift Shop (most items are now sold out)
  • Why did you choose to use Islamic-inspired dress? The rationale behind the hijab and burqa is that it provides a separation between ‘man and God’. Simiarly, the rationale behind the ‘Anti-Drone’ Burqa and Hijab are to provide a separation between 'man and drone'.
