does surveillance provide protection or disturb the individual liberty?

our demand for security has increased.

our demand for technology has increased.

our demands have put us all under surveillance.

has technology invaded our privacy?

has privacy become a memory?

privacy is essential to our humanity.

privacy permits us to maintain lives.

have you ever felt like someone is watching you? because in today’s society every single individual has the opportunity to watch and observe, as well the ability to record other people and share them over the internet.

everytime we use our smartphone signal.

everytime we connect to the internet and WiFi.
