Art or Surveilance
Art or Surveillance of the Day: Artist Kyle MacDonald‘s latest project, “People Staring at Computers,” has landed him in hot water with the Secret Service.
The project involved installing software on 100 Apple Store computers in NYC, having them take photos every minute, and automatically uploading the ones with faces in them to a Tumblr. The result is exactly what it sounds like: a bunch of people staring at computers.
It’s obviously controversial, but McDonald doesn’t believe his project broke any laws. He thought it was no big deal when Apple noticed all the network activity his program was creating, but the Secret Service showed up at his house today, confiscating two computers, an iPod and two flash drives. Their warrant said he was violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
McDonald says he’ll now have to buy a new computer, and he told Mashable, “Hopefully they let me into the Apple store.”
