„I.R.A.S.C. Infrared light against surveillance cameras”

with 2 comments

A simple DIY infrared headlight disturbs surveillance cams. I like this very simple but efficient idea. Any proposals for daylight non-IR cams?

The artists U.R.A. / FILOART will present this project tomorrow during Pechakucha night Berlin volume 8. See you there!

“Infrared light against surveillance cameras” is an infra-red device working as a protection shield from infra-red surveillance cameras. Everybody can rebuild this device without special technical skills.

I-R.A.S.C. is a device giving every citizen a reliable protection from governmental security measures. I-R.A.S.C. is security against security and therefore a response to the dissymmetry of the forces between state and individual. Instead of showing and interaction among human-beings, or between man and machine.

I-R.A.S.C. demonstrates an interaction among machines. This is part of absurd situation – while the time and effort invested into protection measures aims at the alleged safety of the citizens, the individual looses importance in this safety concept.
