After Snowden publically revealed his identity, she wrote, My world has opened and closed all at once. Surely there will be villainous pirates, distracting mermaids, tides change in the new open water chapter of my journey. She calls this portrait “Fish out of water,” and, indeed, she gives the impression of a creature who has emerged from some unfathomable depth of the Internet (in one photo, she even wears a diving costume).It feels strange and a little mean to scrutinize Mills’s self-portraiture, especially now that her exposure will no doubt invite all kinds of speculation about her personality and her politics—but, until Tuesday, Mills offered herself up for scrutiny to whoever might wish to look at her blog.

Televisualisation, cyberspace presentation, and mobile phone counter observation also raise new questions considering 'traditional' surveillance.

Images can be played with, and can work as a form of resistance.

The roles of visual representations have been multiplied.

In contrast of being targets of the ever-increasing surveillance, people seek to play an active role in the production of images, thus, reclaiming the copyright of their own lives.

On one foot, she wears a hiking boot, on the other a high-heeled shoe (“wild refined #selfportrait,” she calls it).

In yet another, she’s holding herself in the air, one hand on a metal pole, above the heads of a bride and groom. The blog entries themselves are a mixture of chatty accounts of Mills’s days in Hawaii, stories of her athletic and pole-dancing feats, descriptions of fun evenings with friends, and declarations of girl power (she refers to herself throughout as a “world-traveling, pole-dancing superhero”). The entry is illustrated with a photo of Mills, wearing a turquoise lace bra, making a fish face.

These deliberately produced images contest many of the conventional ways of thinking how visibility and transparency connote with power and control.

To be (more) seen is not always to be less powerful.

They change the conventional code of what can or cannot be shown, and thus, expose cultural tensions surrounding epistemological conceptions of vision, gender, identities, and moralities.
