Security Blankets

Security Blankets are designed to help keep you protected from surveilling entities. Wrap yourself with a cozy layer of encryption, and keep your innermost thoughts and feelings private.

The work explores the nature of protection, security and susceptibility. As we become increasingly vulnerable to breaches of privacy, we are also more reliant upon the invisible systems that encrypt our data (identity, credit, taxes, biometrics). These patterned blankets serve dual purposes: making information security visible and providing psychological comfort.

A collaboration with Cem Eskinazi and Llewellyn Hensley.
