A Flock of Surveillance Cameras

Madrid’s light art crew Luzinterruptus has unleashed 75 mock surveillance cameras to intimidate the street posters of campaigning politicians to protest “the markets, loaded with unlimited power” that overthrow ” legitimate governments, imposing in their place a race of technocrats of suspect past.” Right. What they said, but boy, we could surely have used this little herd to stage an opposition protest to the NYPD’s super-surveillance network. Line ’em up in the subway like a citizen army for a little cameras vs. cameras insurrectionist intervention? (Photos: Gustavo Sanabria/Luzinterruptus)
