How is the City your studio? "The City, specifically it's surveillance culture, has been instrumental in inspiring URME Surveillance. With Chicago being the most widely surveilled city in the nation, with over 25,000 networked surveillance cameras, Chicago has been an incredible place for me as maker to think about these things, and how to resist them. But more importantly, its the home of so many wonderful communities. It is these communities that I hope to collaborate with in order to create diverse local platforms of solidarity and resistance. I have so much to still learn from the people of this City."
