From seed to mesh
A work in progress on the changing legal status of the potato in all its glory and forms.


le petit RIOT-noir

le petit prince copyright confusion

The Public Domain, a place perhaps not fit for a little Prince, but there we can find him 70 years after the death of his maker....or at least for those outside of France.
Like in fiction, there is a twist. His author died while serving France and to reward him...his creation remains under copyright for another extra years.

to enjoy the freedom everybody else has the French have to wait, which seems like a strange form of nation pride but while they cannot legally touch and play...we are free to do

also: soon available for french civil disobedience

The technology creep into private sphere: Fashion

Shrug to consent

This project-in-progress looks at the legal criteria of reasonable expectation of privacy. 
Circumstances taken into account to determine if we have the right to privacy: include how we expect our privacy to be protected in public, and how we act to show this expectation.

Now, if we shrug and accept more and more intrusive technologies (for example biometrics and pervasive camera and sensor drone technologies) that can be used as means for surveillance without any form of protest or debate about its legitimacy
will it not become more difficult to claim we have a right to privacy, if our actions show we no longer expect it ?

Keeping this and 21st-century censorship  in mind shouldn't we make ourselves suspect of politicalPR behind media branded 'hype' technologies !?

Just because
doesn't seem like a good enough reason to develop technologies that make us give up our expectations and as a result our right to privacy.
One of the considerations to determine expectations of privacy in public is the actions we take. So if we need to show precaution we take to exclude access by others to prove we expect privacy; HOW/WHEN/WHAT will this start to influence !?

For example: what we wear in public

[clothes that draw attention to the person that wears them ]  
 is exactly what we do not want

 In visible camouflage you use colors and specific patterns to do so.  You have to blend in and use cover and concealment.  You wouldn’t go unnoticed wearing traditional camouflage laying down in the middle of a parking lot. ...knowing your surroundings and the characteristics of what is searching for you is the key.

On camouflage

I am interested in the impact of technology on autonomy and law. This threesome proves to continue to inspire me to become aware and re-think boundaries formerly known as illusions of freedom

 and so the fashion of privacy: to be continued
