Join us for a workshop with Adam Harvey on the occasion of the launch of the Data Pools edition! You will learn, in theory and in practice, how to spoof the geolocation of your phone by using SkyLift. Harvey’s device allows one to relocate the signal of one's mobile phone to another location. You should be twelve years or older and you should bring your own computer for programming. If you are among the first ten participants to register, you can keep your SkyLift device.
Data Pools is a geolocation spoofing project about big tech CEO's, data collecting and pools. The joint venture of SkyLift by programmer, designer and artist Adam Harvey and Unreal Estate by designer Anastasia Kubrak, investigates the technological possibilities of geolocation. Since the 2000s Harvey has worked with algorithms for monitoring and facial recognition, designing and programming counter-strategies that undermine the operation of common control systems. Kubrak on the other hand, runs a fictional agency for tricking and concealing property from satellite surveillance by using military technology and the image strategies of high-resolution aerial imagery. Their latest portfolio presents selected private pools of big tech billionaires such as Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Evan Spiegel (Snap) or Larry Page (Google).
