Amy Collier and Jen Ross have been collaborating on various projects since they met at a conference in Las Vegas in 2012. Transatlantically, they’ve developed their concept of ‘not-yetness’ and talked and written about this in a number of places.
Since late 2018, they’ve been thinking about what kind of collaboration would be most useful and generative at this particular moment. After Surveillance is what they came up with.
