Theresulting video and audio are displayed on a monitor in the publicspace, interrupting the standard security camera type display each timea potential rock star is detected. The idea is to humorously examineand demystify concerns about surveillance and computer systems not interms of being watched, but in terms of how the watching is being done- and how else it might be done if other people were at the wheel..
