If you’re walking around London, you already know that 7,431 cameras are watching you. Cameras lurk on walls and on street corners, at ATMs and over cash registers.
Dutch new media artist Sander Veenhof’s working concept, Watch Your Privacy Watch Your Privacy renders bulls eye-like hot spots on the ground where cameras could be filming, and it extends field-of-view cones from cameras themselves.
This user interface does not blend in with subtlety. Cameras flood your view with red, yellow, and green iconography, and the relatively covert world of public surveillance is made wonderfully overt.
