Artist Brian Singer Creates Cryptic Signs that Signal a Lack of Privacy

Door hangers are typically associated with the idea of privacy, but Brian Singer has decided put a twist on them to shed light on the habits of modern society. The San Francisco-based artist crafted them out of metal and etched them with a portion of the Miranda rights, "Anything you say can and will be used against you."

Hanging them around the city's Mission District, Brian Singer is not trying to bring attention to police activity, but something deeper: "The project is inspired by how technology has enabled or empowered what appears to be the darker side of humanity. The intent is to get people to think about what it means to live in a society where the words you say or what you tweet or type can actually be used against you in a way that can be very detrimental to your well-being."
