Intercept

Nowadays more and more laws are being passed that give secret services and companies more rights to intercept our conversations and browsing behaviour. Within the topic of the project month 'Behind the Net' we researched these interceptors. What are their intentions and backgrounds.
In the final performance we invited the artist Paolo Cirio to give a talk about interception on the net and what that means for citizens and artists. For that evening we created an installation where you could intercept on the conversation by placing a cup to your ear. Some excerpts from the evening can be seen in the video.
Collaboration with Ties van Asseldonk, Deborah Mora, Bram de Groot, Ibo Ibelings, Tycho Kilsdonk and Gabriƫlle Gijsbers.
