New Methods of Deception

A collaboration with Illustrator Rus Brockman, New Methods of Deception is a manual for evading detection in a future of ubiquitous sensors and analysis of huge volumes of data on individuals and societies. Constructed as an underground handbook for paranoiacs, dissidents, criminals, academics, cultural tourists and non-beings, it bears traces of its passage from mind-to-mind and medium-to-medium; supplemented, edited, betrayed and distilled.
