„Interception”

The surveillance camera being used to monitor public space was taken over.
Next, the camera was used intentionally to broaden consciousness concerning the problem of increasing lack of privacy.
The camera working with a special software was recognizing human posture
inside highly monitored public area.
The image was projected on the wall.
The action was illegal.
