A bag to protect your data and minimize your exposure to passive and active surveillance. Phones are very leaky devices, constantly receiving and transmitting data. Sealed inside this bag, your phone is prevented from exchanging any data with the outside world. The bag is a limited edition, handmade faraday cage: the metallic fabric blocks wireless signals, including RFID, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It is designed for the safety of protestors as much as it is designed for daily use and general peace of mind. Profits from this project are donated to Bed-Stuy Strong and the Black Feminist Project. Designed and produced in collaboration with Tiff Bushka.
Faraday fabric, shock cord dipped in rubber, toggle.
