The first Art Installation of the Network Institute is live!

The title of the art installation is (re)think the role of smart sensors in the digital age

There are smart cameras all around us in the public space. From the police, the city government, big and small companies, and from residents. We may have become used to them by now and feel safe because of them. But
these camera’s analyse us with artificial intelligence. And they store these analyses somewhere with a specific purpose. ‘(re)think the role of smart sensors in the digital age’ questions this development. The video installation explores the space between what smart cameras currently do and what they might do in the near future. By doing so we encourage ongoing conversations. How do we want smart surveillance to evolve? Immerse yourself in the installation, talk about it with fellow students and university staff, and let your voice be heard!

The work is created by Marjoleine van der Meij (Athena) and Marco Schürmann (MarcoschMedia), inspired by the CATALYST project (NWO:CISC.CC.007) and funded by the VU Network Institute.

Come by to see it!

It is placed at the first floor of the NU building, see below the map with the specific location.
