Urban Evolution: “PanoptICONS”

Die niederländischen Künstler Thomas voor ‘t Hekke und Bas van Oerle haben unter dem Schlagwort “Urban Evolution” das schöne Projekt PanoptICONS in Utrecht realisiert. Street Art Installationen in Form von Vögel mit Überwachungskameras als Kopf , entstanden als Projekt für die Utrecht school of the Arts.

“‘panoptICONS’ addresses the fact that you are constantly being watched by surveillance cameras in city centres. The surveillance camera seems to have become a real pest that feeds on our privacy. To represent this, camera birds – city birds with cameras instead of heads – were placed throughout the city centre of Utrecht where they feed on our presence. In addition, a camera bird in captivity was displayed to show the feeding process and to make the everyday breach of our privacy more personal and tangible.
