Abstract: On the streets and in social media Occupy Wall Street captured the imagination of the United States and exposed tensions between the NYPD's policies of surveillance and our basic freedoms. It gave us an example of the deep power of voice residing in digital culture and the problems that arise when this voice is met with heavy governmental restrictions, many of them the result of preemptive information policies. As a photographer who has experienced deep transformations in her own practice because of digital technology, the author is curious of the ways in which digital photography is transforming and reflective of culture. The power of an image making populace can transform the balance of the status quo. In a context of power, mobility and changing landscapes, a new set of tools is enabling and exposing tensions of culture and rights. This presentation will explore the smart phone as a daily tool and an information weapon whose protection could be considered under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Right to Bear Arms.
