Nothing says outrage at the creeping surveillance state like an adorable terrier wearing human clothes with leaked NSA documents printed on them. Big Data Pawn Shop, an art project/clothing label wants you to be able to make a fashion STATEMENT with the documents that Edward Snowden risked his life to smuggle out of NSA headquarters.
If you don’t have a clueless dog or small child to wrap in terrifying evidence of the big brother apparatus that is permeating our globally connected world, then you can buy a totebag or a trucker hat containing the powerpoint details of clandestine programs with names like CYCLONE-HX9 and CROSSBEAM. Nothing says “I’m comfortable with my loss of privacy” like a warm over-sized hoodie.
If the knowledge that all of your conversations and emails are being archived becomes too much to take, you can drown your sorrows in booze straight from a flask that never lets you forget your cultural anxiety. Bottoms up people, here’s to the future.
