The Lookout, 2021-2024

Control unprotected CCTV cameras with a Playstation controller.

‘The Lookout’ is an interactive installation that makes it possible to watch and control cameras that are unsecured and connected to the internet.

The installation displays +1500 realtime unsecured CCTV cameras. They are unprotected, without a password or they use a standard easy to find password. The cameras are controllable with a gamepad (zoom, pan & tilt).

When you use the controller,  the motor of the camera will move physically somewhere in the world.

Before and during the exhibition photographers will be invited to use this tool for 1 day to make photos with the gamepad instead of their photo camera.
