Resist: Constant Surveillance - 1 of 3 pieces for @ellohype latest idea of Not For Print.
There are over 25 million CCTV cameras in the world, with 10% of those existing within the UK. The average person is caught on camera thousands of time a day, with every movement being detailed a recorded despite the fact most people are law-abiding citizens about their daily business. What’s more, the footage captured by these cameras is often useless, with footage being overwritten within a matter of hours of being captured. Whilst a deterrent, rarely is CCTV footage reviewed in hindsight to find the perpetrators of minor crimes. The constant feeling of being watched and monitored whilst simply going about every day life can often be intimidating and stressful and make the general public fear what could happen or feel guilt for merely existing.
