A Society, Surveilled

In a society where our every move, both online and offline, is capable of being observed, I found it shocking how few were actually aware of the lack of privacy they had. I wanted to reflect this using a classic social symbol, used to represent all a nation stands for - a flag.
Designed and embroidered digitally, I chose to have the world at the centre of the design, placed within a digital 'Big Brother' eye of 1's and 0's to represent how we are not watched by human eyes anymore, but by algorithms. I then used the iconic stripes of the flag of the United States of America - one of the most heavily surveilled countries in the world.
