Trevor Paglen’s work investigates the ongoing interaction between contemporary life and surveillance. As cities and populations grow, and new technologies widely implemented, so does the arsenal of reconnaissance technology used to track and collect data. Paglen’s work looks to interrogate and challenge these covert and potentially invisible technologies surveillance. Join Paglen and Ben Vickers in the debate of secrecy, surveillance and state as he discusses projects from across his portfolio.
