2006 Rockefeller New Media Foundation Proposal
ACCESS is a public space installation that applies web and surveillance technologies, allowing web users to track individuals in public spaces. Individuals are tracked without wearing any gear or marker by a spotlight that they can't escape, and an acoustic beam which projects audio that only they can hear. ACCESS presents control tools that combine surveillance technology with the advertising and Hollywood industries, creating an intentionally ambiguous situation, revealing the obsession-fascination for control, vigilance, visibility and celebrity: scary or fun.
