The co-opting of the corporeal body as a tool for counter-surveillance by the Metropolitan Police in London creates a tenuous relationship. The co-opted body is entrapped within a web of surveillance through technologies and everyday transactions which assemble the body as a site of data as well as a surveillance entity. The body, its everyday actions and relationship to surveillance, technology and data creation in risk societies constructs complex and intricate connections where new risk hierarchies, typologies and categories represent the power arrangements as well as our cultural responses to uncertainties and fears in an interconnected world.
