Focus research & consequences of moving from general to specific.

Consequences of moving from general to specific include difficulty in seeing the bigger picture in relation to the rest of the world and reality itself. Also, factors which contribute to the specific idea/issue are often overlooked, thus forgetting important supporting evidence.

I have been exploring how police interference and brutality intersect, especially in regards to the art world. Police interference, including the monitoring of social media, has driven artists to become more anonymous, especially among the street scene. Artists like Ganzeer and JR, use street walls as their gallery. Some could argue they remain anonymous due to the often illegal medium of their art, but i chose to believe they anonymity stems from the suppression of freedom of speech, especially about current world issues, e.g. police brutality.

Police interference 

Privacy concerns?

Does this mean no more freedom of speech?

Geofencing – “A geofence is a virtual barrier. Programs that incorporate geo-fencing allow an administrator to set up triggers so when a device enters (or exits) the boundaries defined by the administrator, a text message or email alert is sent.” Margaret Rouse.
