As the world’s most heavily surveilled country, China has approximately 200 million cameras installed.
During the pandemic, surveillance cameras was used to monitor people in quarantine, to make sure they are not stepping out of their homes. In some cases, the cameras were installed inside people’s homes, which turned a safe private space into the Truman Show. The boundary between domestic and public environments is now blurry. Through installing surveillance cameras to the chandelier at home, I question privacy and ethics around the development of technology.
