!Mediengruppe Bitnik | Same Same
The piece temporarily deprives the Cabaret Voltaire of control over their online imagery and it is instead Google's similar image algorithm which assumes control. This leads to often humorous shifts which are at the same time very much to the point: Artists are often recognized and their artworks replaced by other pieces. Abstract forms, gestures and objects are reduced to their basic structural forms and replaced with anything similar-looking. Live - Cabaret Voltaire Website. 20 March - 12. July 2015.
!Mediengruppe Bitnik | CCTV – A Trail of Images
Mediengruppe Bitnik has been conducting walks through the sceneries of invisible cities: Equiped with self-built CCTV video signal receivers and video recording devices they organise Dérives in search of hidden - and usually invisible - surveillance camera signals in public space. Surveillance becomes sousvellance: The self-built tools provide access to surveillance from above by capturing and displaying CCTV signals, thus making them visible and recordable.
