From the exhibition’s publicity release: “Cyber-Surveillance in Everyday Life is organized in conjunction with the international workshop of the same name, taking place at the University of Toronto from 12-15 May 2011. The exhibition explores a number of the workshop’s central themes, such as the intersections between surveillance and social networking, identity and anonymity, and monitoring techniques.
