WE ARE WATCHING YOU
151-153 N. Main Street
An individual may think nothing
when encountered by a surveillance camera, a two-way mirror,
or other forms of security devices. Many individuals will notice
monitors filming them in convenience stores or airports, but
what about walking down a public street or in their car? In
many theatrical presentations we have noticed the excessive
use of hidden cameras to exploit others, but do individuals
wish to be exploited? The big brother theory is more real than
weíll ever know. Demonstrated through my project, I will show
how easily oneís simplest action can be caught on tape and shown
to the world. When you walk out of your house, how private is
your privacy and how public is your every action?
Through the use of the technological devices such as cameras
and monitors, I will bring ìBig Brotherî to Bowling Green, Ohio.
Using hidden cameras to deceive and confuse the public, I will
study the human reaction to such circumstances. The use of strange
placements of televisions is various places in the city, will
in many ways build interest and intrigue into the whole concept
of surveillance. I am attempting to build awareness to avoid
a very dangerous and public world of the future.
