I’m happy to share that ScareMail was given the Expanded Media Award for Network Culture at the 2015 Stuttgarter Filmwinter in Stuttgart, Germany. ScareMail was selected at the conclusion of the Expanded Media Festival that ran from 15-18 January at several venues in Stuttgart. An excerpt from the jury statement:
It can be used by everybody as a social tool with a real effect on the networks of surveillance, because it is successfully disabling the control systems with the exuberance of false information. ScareMail is an excellent representative of the media art practice, where software knowledge, activism and aesthetic production are tightly intertwined. It is an easy accessible poetic tool with a real political effect.
