Banksy's CCTV Nation





Banksy's latest and the biggest work in London so far - his response to the "Big Brother" society that this city has become.

But, oh the irony! Neither the CCTV camera, nor the 24-hours security officer at the Post Office depot spotted a 3 storey scaffold being erected in their yard for 2 days, hiding the elusive artist behind a polythene sheet.

So, are we increasingly being watched or ignored as much as possible?



Post Office yard, Newman Street, off Oxford St

We had this proposition of the nation under CCTV awhile back. News have since died down.

Interesting shot!

What a great photo! Britain is becoming more like Big brother every day we have more CCTV cameras than any other country and I noticed that average speed cameras are now becoming the norm on the road network.

We have police cameras spread about here in my Chicago neighborhood. They use the logic "if you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear" to convince people constant surveillance is okay. We're living in interesting times.

For some reason it is always your photos of graffiti that attract me. It is a great way to express oneself to a large audience (not that I have ever tried it) - but I often appreciate it - contrary to the general public.

Thank you all for your comments, and remember: Big Brother IS watching you (although he may not be paying attention)!
