isthisit? issue 5 concerns the current state of surveillance, how offline and online life has become increasingly monitored and mediated by corporations and government bodies. Is a surveillance state something to be sought after, enabling the young and old to traverse dark streets late at night, or would this swiftly turn into a thinly veiled dystopian nightmare, built on elegant rhetoric subliminally insinuating that minority groups are the problem, forcing the lower classes out of cities and into oblivion? Or has this not already happened on a world wide scale? Is it ethically and morally correct to use a data-mining company to manipulate and seduce voters? Who makes the rules in a society that increasingly resembles a totalitarian paradise? The upcoming book seeks to investigate and question these fundamental and increasingly pertinent questions.
