These Clothes Protect Your Personal Privacy

Artist Adam Harvey creates clothing that makes the wearer invisible for drones. I doubt if people who need it can afford it.

"New Museum's pop-up gift shop sells design objects to protect your personal privacy in a world of consistent surveillance.

Artist Adam Harvey intends to provoke discussions about privacy with an art and design project that aims to raise awareness of advanced forms of surveillance such as UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), colloquially known as drones, by creating counter-surveillence items with the collaboration of fashion designer Johanna Bloomfield. Their ‘anti-drone wear’ collection is inspired by the Muslim burqa and the scarf. As Harvey explains on this website,  “conceptually, these garments align themselves with the rationale behind the traditional hijab and burqa: to act as the veil which separates man or the world from God, replacing God with drone.”"
