The Stalker State

The Stalker State is the information gathering, storing, and sharing environment we are all immersed in. This is an ever-changing, ever-evolving web of agencies and organizations that embody a toxic culture of data collection with the intent to police us and cause harm. It doesn’t only watch us to invade privacy, it watches to criminalize us. We invite you to explore the imagery and contemplate how all these entities connect in a way that leads to harm.

THE STALKER STATE AS AN ORGANISM

It may be helpful to think about The Stalker State as a sprawling, living, beast. It has different cells that exchange and feed on information in order to expand its power. What we perceive today may change form tomorrow.

THE STALKER STATE IS A TOXIC ENVIRONMENT
PUBLIC SERVICES ARE COMPLICIT IN SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY REPORTING
FUSION CENTERS ARE THE BEATING HEART OF THE STALKER STATE
THE LAPD ARCHITECTURE OF SURVEILLANCE IS BUT ONE PART OF THE STALKER STATE

FOR ALL OF THE PERCEIVED BENEFITS, THE NET YIELD IS TOXIC AND DANGEROUS
