For some time Dries Depoorter has been exploring themes of privacy, artificial intelligence, surveillance & social media in his work, creating interactive installations, apps and games that question our relationship to and with technology.
His latest work, ’24h Sunrise/Sunset’ is an attempt to show that ‘unsecured CCTV cameras can also show something beautiful‘ – an installation that displays a realtime sunset and sunrise somewhere happening in the world with the use of CCTV.
Created using Raspberry Pi 3B+, Arduino Nano Every , custom PCB, power supply’s, VFD displays, lasercut metal and LEDs. Software includes Python 3 & Firebase realtime databases.
Currently on display at Window of the World at St.Moritz till 18.10.2020.
