Super Surveillant Spectacle

Mixed Media Environment

SSS-Collage
Georg Schuetz 2007

“Super Surveillant Spectacle” is an environment where the visitors are able to participate with numerous installations. These installations have in common that they made use of automated surveillance cameras, which are hooked up to the internet, in order to provide public broadcasting. Typically features of these technologies like Motion Detection or Noise Recognition are used to trigger the recording of short clips, clips which are posted then at video platforms such as Youtube.com and Revver.com. Furthermore, snapshots are posted frequently to Flickr.com, a popular photo community.

The proposed promise of “SSS” is to gather worldwide attention on everyone interacting with the the SSS-System. I am emphasising the search for attention embodied in everyone in a time of individualism where potential rules over skills.
