PANEL 003


OPERATION SCROOGE


JENNIFER MOON (ARTIST) AND ALICE BARKER (INFORMATION SECURITY EXPERT + PRIVACY ADVOCATE) EXAMINE THE PSYCHOSOCIAL NATURE OF CYBERSECURITY - THE ENTANGLEMENT OF EMOTION, INTUITION AND MANIPULATION INHERENT IN EVEN THE MOST BENEVOLENT CON.

A DISCUSSION ON THE PROSPECTS OF RESISTANCE AND DECOLONIZATION THROUGH THE USE OF DECENTRALIZED NETWORKS, DIGITAL CURRENCIES AND TACTILE APPROACHES TO HACKING WILL BE FOLLOWED BY A WORKSHOP ON SCROOGING : A FORM OF CONNING COINED BY JENNIFER MOON AND INSPIRED BY THE TRANSFORMATION OF EBENEZER SCROOGE.

A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF A SCROOGING MISSION INVOLVES IN DEPTH RECON TO DETERMINE WHAT THE TARGET TRULY DESIRES BEYOND BINARIES, HIERARCHIES, AND CAPITAL. OFTEN IT IS SOME FORM OF LOVE. ATTENDEES ARE ENCOURAGED TO BRING A COMPUTER OR SMARTPHONE.

OPERATION SCROOGE WILL BE FOLLOWED BY A SHORT HOW-TO ON THE BASICS OF CYBERSECURITY AND ENCRYPTION RUN BY ECHO THEOHAR AND CHELLY JIN OF VOIDLAB.
