We Live in Public

Participation Capture, Sousveillance, Panoptical surveillance

Sousveillance is the conscious capture of processes from below, by individual participants; surveillance is from the top down, while participation capture is inscribed in the very protocols of cooperation and is therefore an automatic ‘inscription’ of what we are doing:

In English, on the emergence of the Participatory Panopticon:

C/Overt operations

Our main tool for this workshop will be easily to obtained, simple to use and perfectly legal video receivers that can intercept the data collected by small CCTV video cameras often placed covertly in shops, offices and other public/private spaces.

Social Centre Plus

Local residents who occupied the old Job Centre on Deptford High Street with the aim of “converting it into an anti-cuts space for the community” have responded to a legally binding eviction order for this Tuesday by announcing a series of events, culminating in a “mass meeting of anti-cuts activists” the night before. The collective – who go by the name of Social Centre Plus – also plan to bring the local community together against the government’s budget cuts, with spoken word concerts, children’s days, film showings and market day cafés.

Deptford TV: C/Overt operations with CCTV sniffing and collaborative open source video editing
Main workshop day: Thursday 10 March 2011, 11:30-17:30
Venue: Pajasali, Suomenlinna Island (+ Helsinki centre)

This workshop will attempt to identify and document secret (covert) places, strategies and messages in our everyday surroundings. We will use overt, co-operative tactics and practice openness and transparency to push the covert into clearer view.

Following The Crisis

For this walk we had the following instructions from the Mediengruppe Bitnik:

1) Wait in front of a bank
2) Wait until a bankers leaves the building
3) Follow the banker until he enters a building
4) Document
5) Record your observations to the following telephone number xxxx

During the walk I was carrying a GHz range receiver built by Martin Howse and I recorded the "Maxwellian landscape" of the London financial district.
