COVID tracking app. Surveillance and control

June 23rd, 2020

Since the Uk government are dragging their heels on a decent tracking app for Covid 19 I thought I would share my new tracking app for large crowds festivals and of course Covid. If the government want to test it out get in touch. The APP tracks people in the city, in the park or at home as individuals and this data collected. The data is then represented as a morphed collective group entity, a visual collage of where we have all been and what we have been looking at. Participants are monitored by the system and the collected data is used to visualise them through the online visualisation which can also be shown at home, in the city, or gallery. While the system can be used to track individuals the result is like a collaborative collage of all data collected. What you experience is a real time artwork as an interconnected system.

Stanza Tracking app for large groups

The artwork reforms this information and data creating parallel realities. At the heart of this work lies an interest in the urban environment, the networks of cameras and sensors to be found there, and the associated issue of privacy and alienation. The work sits in the middle of concepts for smart cities, The Internet of Things( IOT) and the new technologies that monitors the real time environment. In appearance, the Nemesis Machine is like Big Brother parsed through the lens of the Internet of things. It gives visitors a bird’s eye view of a cybernetic cityscape, where skyscrapers are constructed of silicon and circuit boards.
