panoptICONS

panoptICONS is a project by Thomas voor ‘t Hekke and Bas van Oerle that brings up some interesting points about privacy in an urban setting – and also succeeds in freaking me out. In their words:

‘panoptICONS’ addresses the fact that you are constantly being watched by surveillance cameras in city centres. The surveillance camera seems to have become a real pest that feeds on our privacy. To represent this, camera birds – city birds with cameras instead of heads – were placed throughout the city centre of Utrecht where they feed on our presence. In addition, a camera bird in captivity was displayed to show the feeding process and to make the everyday breach of our privacy more personal and tangible.
