Paint Strokes of Privacy

Blur surveillance footage in real time through bodily movement.




October 2021


I found a fun website "Window Swap" that allows visitors to watch camera footage from a random window around the world. This raises questions on privacy, surveillance

Inspired by Niklas Roy's "My Little Piece of Privacy," this project tries to create a digital version of mechanism that seemingly solves issue with surveillance but in fact attracts attention more than ever.

Built with PoseNet from ml5 in p5.js. Try it live here.
