Organic Surveillance: Security & Myth in the Rural

Organic surveillance looks at the ways Northeastern Ontario landowners protect and secure their land and property through preemptive and deterence mechanisms, such as traditional and contemporary surveillance. The mechanisms instituted by Northeastern Ontairo municipalities and landowners are influenced by urban centers, characteristics of land, technology, sustainability, psychology, physicality and (in) visibility.
