Unmanned aerial vehicles have become widely available, and they trigger strong reactions, not only from the citizenry but also from the authorities. Our acceptance of the camera is shifting as we reassess the boundaries between documentation and surveillance and balance questions of privacy, security, and civil process.
Stephen Mayes will moderate this panel exploring the practical and emotional place of drones in the modern world with the speakers Tomas Van Houtryve, E. Adam Attia a.k.a. ESSAM, and Brandon LaGanke and John Carlucci from GHOST+COW.

What right do governments, corporations, and individuals have to collect and retain information on your daily communications? What tools—both today and in the past—have been used to monitor your activities? What are the immediate and far-reaching effects? These questions unite the ten bodies of work selected for the Open Society Foundations’ (OSF) Fall 2014 Moving Walls exhibition “Watching You, Watching Me.”
This upcoming installment of OSF’s Moving Walls documentary photography series explores how photography has been used both as an instrument of surveillance and as a tool to document, expose, and challenge the impact of surveillance on civil liberties, human rights, and basic freedoms. Among the ten selected bodies of work, is Blue Sky Days.
There will be an opening reception on Monday, November 3 at 6:00 pm. RSVP here.

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), or North Korea, has been called the Hermit Kingdom, as it is one of the most reclusive states in the world. North Korea’s citizens are not allowed to travel abroad, there is no Internet connection to the outside world, and the flow of information is almost completely controlled by the government.
This exhibition is divided into two main sections: one showing the government’s official version of North Korea, while the other offers the alternative view of the country. Government propaganda images and images made by tourists on state-controlled tours will offer an official view. These will be juxtaposed with an uncensored stream of images coming out of the country, including photographs produced by foreign photographers inside North Korea Tomas van Houtryve and David Guttenfelder. North Korean Perspectives is organized by Europe-based independent curator Marc Prüst.
