Interception 2 (2008)

„Interception 2 ” 2008

Over the course of one night, there had been an intervention into public space, during which six surveillance cameras had been rendered unusable. In every location where the surveillance camera had been disabled, the author left a mark- the word „Panopticon”, which pointed to the meaning of the action.

Interception 2 is a continuation of project Interception (2007). During “Interception” a surveillance camera that was used to monitor public space was hijacked and reinstalled at a subway station. The camera was used intentionally to broaden consciousness concerning the problem of increasing lack of privacy. Both actions were illegal.
