Modern CCTV Surveillance cameras are state of the art
Comments Off on Modern CCTV Surveillance cameras are state of the art
Modern art and CCTV cameras… not something you see in the same sentence often. However, that is exactly what is going on with the new exhibition at the Tate Modern. "It is posing a question about the politics of spectatorship," said Simon Baker, Tate’s newly appointed photography curator, continuing: "We are raising questions about boundaries, about technology. There are serious moral questions about who’s looking, how they’re looking and why they’re looking."
Baker has assembled in the London gallery 13 rooms of images touching on themes of invasions of privacy. Maybe – or maybe not – it has escaped the notice of earnest art critics stroking their chins at the displays that in Tate Modern there are security cameras routinely installed anyway. Mobile phone cameras are used by protesters when the individual interacts with the state – perhaps that is the point of the exhibition to highlight these juxtapositions.
Chances are that a camera near you has been set up by CCTV Surveillance Ltd, the top UK installer and maintenance service provider of digital CCTV camera and recording surveillance systems. If so, we would have done the utmost to provide the best equipment available from the leading manufacturers to suit your brief and your budget. Our state of the art (pun intended) CCTV cameras are suitable for indoor environments like galleries, where a wide angle lens in a corridor or room would be ideal, and outdoor ones.
