Does the Internet know too much about you? Meet The New Organs project

Can our devices be controlled? Are microphones and cameras being turned on without our knowledge?

Though a definitive answer is hard to explain; Tega Brain and Sam Lavigne teamed up to create The New Organs— an online project showing what it’s like to live under digital surveillance.

“The New Organs is a project to gather, archive and investigate the theories and realities of corporate surveillance. Over the past year, we’ve collected stories about weird online ads — ads that seem to know too much, as well as your theories of why you might be seeing them. Using these stories as a starting point, we’ve investigated the details of how internet companies monitor, exploit and manipulate us in an attempt to understand how surveillance capitalism operates.”
