Jaywalking

The installation automatically catches jaywalkers using live surveillance webcams and gives visitors the choice to report them to the police.

 

Jaywalking gives us an opportunity to watch traffic webcams and decide on the fate of pedestrians recklessly crossing the road. Monitors display LIVE unprotected surveillance footage of intersections in different countries. Depoorter then presents us with a dilemma: will we report the unsuspecting jaywalker? A single press of the button can send a screenshot of the violation to the nearest police station with an email.
