What are network media environments? Here at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication, this is the kind of question we think about all the time. Even when we sleep.

HTTP presents Abuse of the Public Domain, the first solo show of networked media art by UK artist Stanza.
This exhibition features large-scale projections of 2 works, which use live real-time data from CCTV cameras cited in two cities, London and New York . Security tracking data is Stanza's chosen medium for these process led artworks.
YOU ARE MY SUBJECTS uses data from a single fixed camera in NYC, focusing on subjects as they pass below it. AUTHENTICITY [Trying to imagine the world from everyone elsesâ€™ perspective, all at once] draws its imagery from cameras all over London. Bother works can be viewed in a web browser via the Internet and turn us all into voyeurs of eerie 'parallel realities'.

Usually we cannot watch, the results are not collected for broadcast back to the public. Rather they are monitored, filtered, distributed and archived without our knowledge or permission.
