Walk under video surveillance

Ballade sous video surveillance, 27-02-2010

Several walks organised in collaboration with Constant and the Human Rights League (LDH) in Brussels in 2010. The walks allowed a peak inside private spaces, apartments, bars, by capturing images from unsecured wireless surveillance camera’s. Julien Pieret, lawyer and publicist walked with us and contextualised our actions by explaining relating articles from the Belgian ‘surveillance camera law’.

The goal of these walks were multiple: raising awareness for the fact that bad equipment leads to inferior protection of privacy sensitive images, a surreal walk through interior spaces that otherwise can never be entered, a public debate about private images in public spaces.
