The Internet reaches ever more profoundly into the everyday of citizens.

With governments worldwide enacting security laws that directly affect our sense of privacy and corporations collecting and selling personal data, it becomes increasingly difficult to imagine ourselves outside this pervasive, increasingly monitored network.

This panel addresses some of the issues that arise with attempts to get ‘off the grid’ and how they relate to notions of detection, monitoring, empowerment and online/physical presence.
