Timo Toots

Personal surveillance agency / Department of ants

Timo Toots, a courageous and critical interpreter of the field of contemporary art in Estonia, built a surveillance system for ants in Ii. The installation is an over-the-top version of a nature camera: microphones, sensors, and a camera observe the little society of the ants. The work shows us the direction in which the human society is going with uncountable surveillance systems controlling the way people live. With the push of a button the viewer becomes an agent of the personal surveillance agency.
