Project Champion

2017 | Helmet; PTZ Camera; Live projection 

In 2010, 218 cameras (64 covert) were installed in and around Birmingham, these were removed in 2011, following a campaign by local people and a report by the Overview and Scrutiny Committee that criticized the scheme as an invasion of people’s privacy. ‘Project Champion’ records the space and projects the footage of its viewers; using their image as exhibition content. Targeted, tracked and exploited, the viewers’ freedom is violated just as the civil liberties of the targeted communities have been.
