Hosted by Carroll7Fletcher (56 - 57 Eastcastle St. London, W1W 8EQ), the exhibition brings together four distinct but interrelated series of work, based on the collection and mediation of publicly available information sourced through social media, the Internet and drones, and considers the way in which these technologies are used by the government, intelligence agencies and corporations.
