Open TV

| for ,

Topika and I partnered with the artist Vincent Boschma to develop Open TV, an exploration into surveillance and freedom through CCTV cameras placed around the city. There are 9 cameras in public squares in Amsterdam with LCD screens below. People can see themselves on the screens, while others can watch from afar via a 3×3 grid of videos on http://www.open-tv.nl. I setup the streaming video server and built the website to display the video streams and hourly stills. You can read more about the project on the Topika site.
