Selbstbetrachtung,
Sweza, Berlin 2011, surveillance camera, public screen, mirror

“Selbstbetrachtung” is an urban video hacking project using existing public infrastructure to create a Video. I try to give the surveillance camera a whole new view on the world, open new perspectives by giving it a vice versa view.

It is the surveillance of the surveillance.

TEUER

today a went jogging and found this …
teuer

a card said: “teuer schenke ich den Kreuzbergern als kritik”
you could translate it like:
expensive is what i criticize the kreuzbergers for”

further on it said:
Max Maßloh, 1. Semester Kommunikationsdesign | design akademie berlin, Hochsachule für Kommunikation und Design
Schrift: Rockwell von Frank Hinman Pierpont, entworfen 1934
karte_01

i was confused!! why is teuer something you criticize the kreuzbergers for?? they are the first to suffer from high prices in their district! something had to be done! and i did …
euer

i changed teuer = expensive to euer = your and left a little message to the kreuzbergers:
euer bezirk ist es = it is your destrict
karte_02

and Max, don´t worry you “t” is still there
