In The Watchers, the creative geniuses at Studio Smack picture a world where surveillance systems don't just watch us - they actively judge. Are you a green-coded Conformist or a red-alert Intellectual? The tone is paranoid, but it's a vivid reminder that our technological systems make us as much as we make them. Autonomous algorithms already control our economy, our internet, and our vacuum cleaners. It's not a stretch to imagine that autonomous cameras will control our security and social spaces. Make sure to wait for the twist ending.
Studio Smack has previously been featured here for Pimp My Planet, Transparency Suit and the utterly eerie Kapitaal. Check out more of their work at the Next Nature Power Show on Saturday.
