Loula Yorke – Crowd Control Vol.1

Tigerforce Records – Oct 10th 2020

The topic of surveillance capitalism covers the use of digital products such as social media, as a means of surveillance and corporate influence. The term was coined by the work of Harvard professor Shoshana Zuboff and is also regularly covered by Silicon Valley commentator Jaron Larnier.
