I'm a journalist investigating how people routinely cover their webcams to protect themselves from surveillance, or photos being taken of them by malware, companies, hackers, police, or government. If you send me a photo, I'll use it as the basis for an article I'm writing about NSA (National Security Agency) and corporate privacy violations through webcams as well as an art project.
How to take a photo:
1. Please navigate to the main search page of Google* on your laptop
2. Please take a photo of the entire screen, including the covered webcam. It's okay to cut off the keyboard.
3. Email the image to me in a blank email with the subject "Covered Webcams" at email@example.com, OR post the image to art webpage https://www.facebook.com/pages/Contemporary-Experimental-Art-Archive/207826019279384 OR a link to the pic to my website in the comments section of this blog
*The reason Google is chosen is because of its participation in NSA's PRISM program that collected and stored private citizen's communications.
If you want a credit or updates on the project, tell me and send your name in the email body.
