Description

Sousveillance as a Surveillance-Situationist Inquiry

This picture, of a necklace webcam, was taken in a stairwell in a building on St. George Street in Toronto, where there was a nice large and well-defined window. This seemed to be the best place to photograph the dome and show its shape nicely.

The sousveillance dome is a kind of Situationist critique of surveillance, in the manner of an inverse surveillance.

By re-situating the everyday familiar objects of ubiquitous surveillance ("eye in the sky") down at human level, we reverse the Sur (French for "above") to Sous (French for "below").

A higher resolution picture of this and others like it is available at wearcam.org/domewear/

A scholarly reference can be found in some recent Leonardo articles.
