Future Panic Now!
posted: July 1, 2015
I've been thinking about our gleeful surrender of privacy as a society, for some time now. My parents' generation coveted their privacy and warned about intrusions. Now with social media, there is this expectation to broadcast our every moment, whether real or mythologized. Drones add a new dimension of spying and data collection to the fray. It's easy to slip into paranoia. So when the assignment for the new issue of The Baffler landed, it was an opportunity to gather these thoughts (and phobias) into a single image. Thanks to Patrick Flynn for the complete trust he defers to all the artists he works with.
