The Year: 2066
Diverse artistic styles are used to convey messages in unique ways. Through this senior project, I discuss the topic of Internet Privacy and Surveillance in order to inform viewers of the importance of securing our data today. In doing this, I have constructed a hypothetical future of a dystopian society in response to the outcomes of not educating ourselves on data and privacy in the present day. Within this narrative, I showcase the various pieces of propaganda that would exist in and around this dystopian society. This propaganda serves as a representation of the on-going surveillance crisis. The pieces are made understandable to both past, present and future viewers through its usage of figures we know today such as Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs while integrating the fear-inducing art styles such as Russian Constructivism.
This research and design project will be a graphic illustration seeking inform viewers of the importance of being aware of to whom and where their data is being shared while also critiquing current data protection measures. The area of the practice lies within storytelling, service and, graphic design.
