Chris Pinchen


October 2013 – January 2014

Chris Pinchen is a activist concerned with the levels, and extent, of surveillance in society. Chris is co-founder of the Chokepoint Project, a non-profit organisation that collects, analyses and reports on data relating to network neutrality and civil rights in the digital domain.

During his time at Lighthouse Studio, Chris ran many events including Brighton Cryptofestival and Tech Activist Third Mondays, which invited members of the privacy community to Lighthouse, including investigative journalist Duncan Campbell and the Open Rights Group. Chris also helped to conceive Lego Panopticon, a game teaching children about data, privacy and online safety with one of our MA Students, Maf’j Alvarez.

Chris also spoke on the panel of the launch event for one of our BFI shorts SLR, where he spoke on privacy, surveillance and our online paper trail.
