Operation Earnest Voice

Over 4 days in January 2019, CSNI researcher Katrina Sluis worked with the artist Jonas Lund to transform the 3rd Floor of The Photographers’ Gallery into an influencing office tasked with reversing Brexit. Part installation, part performance, part working think tank, Operation Earnest Voice aimed to explore and interrogate the numerous tools, methods and strategies used to influence public opinion online, from the generation of fake followers to the fabrication of images. The name of the project is an inspiration from Operation Earnest Voice, the US-sponsored campaign, whose purpose is to spread pro-American propaganda on social networking sites.
