Signs of Surveillance
This was a set of street signs designed for a citi-wide project Test Patterns, organized by Artscape Baltimore 2006.
I swear, I did not know anythong about The Wire at that time. Visiting Baltimore I noticed numerous surveillance cameras installed at street intersections in North Baltimore. At night when the cameas were at work, bright blue lights indicated their activity. To indicate surveillance during the day, I photographed twelve of the locations approximating the viewpoints of cameras. The photographs were overprinted with blue circles and installed as street signs at the corresponding addresses.
