The boundaries between the physical and the digital world are blurred. To recognise them, we must make a cognitive effort. We must find new ways of narrating the world.
“Persuasive System” is a network of technological camera devices that incorporate experimental methods of image capture designed to change the visual perception and behaviours of the users through human-computer interaction.
This installation explores the dynamics behind systemic monitoring and surveillance, digital privacy, and image distribution as a pragmatic attempt to investigate the flows of information that influence our social and political opinion within the public sphere.
The emphasis is set on interactions, narratives and conflictual potentials triggered by video surveillance systems. Mechanisms of control are unveiled, rendered visible, re-contextualised, appropriated, questioned, dismantled.
