Debating pervasive surveillance
Let’s bring to the table and reignite the debate regarding trade-offs between convenience, privacy and personal freedom in an increasingly monitored world. The project combines the familiar with the unexpected staged in a classic restaurant table set. It consists of a salt and pepper mill, a vase, a flower, and a candle holder. Each object is equipped with surveillance technology that tracks and admonishes. The project seeks to spark discussion and encourage the guests to think critically about the impact of technology on our social and personal lives.
