Surveillance Speaker

“Surveillance Speaker ” is an installation about surveillance and artificial intelligence. The artwork showcases in a critical way the latest breakthroughs in computer vision software.

“Surveillance Speaker” exists out of a camera, computer and speaker. Though the speaker we hear what the camera sees in a sentence that starts with “I see..”. For example: “I see 3 people in an exhibition watching paintings”. The audience can interact in a playful way how a computer can see. The Surveillance Speaker was exhibited in- and outdoor. How do you look in the eyes of a surveillance camera that can speak?“
