Down the Deep Dark Web
"Drugs, weapons, child pornography and protection from totalitarian repression as well. Down the Deep, Dark Web explores virtual anonymity."
"...opens up philosophical and political interpretations around the deep web."
This is the story of a normative, everyday person coming face-to-face with the Darknet for the first time. The stages that he passes through − from fear and revulsion, to curiosity and attraction − are those that anyone exposed to this phenomenon would rightfully experience. What the Darknet represents is both terrifying and liberating at once. The notion that crime can go undetected and unpunished, shakes our very belief in the social order. Yet the same tools that are used by criminals, can also protect us in an era of online snooping and loss of privacy.
