blinded by the light

blinded by the light



An installation consisting of multiple interconnected objects placed in public space. By pressing a button on a console, passerbys can access a surveillance camera placed in a tree overseeing a section of a public park or pedestrian zone. On the observed location a line on the ground marks the perimeter which is overseen by the camera. For the time the provided button is pushed, the observed location is illuminated by a spotlight, informing the people there that they are being observed.

Public space is transformed into a stage.
