If You See Something, Say Something, 2016
Sommer Skulptur Søby is a sculpture biennale in the harbor village Søby on Ærø in Denmark, an exhibition in public space with solely site-specific works. The title If You See Something, Say Something stems from the campaign by the MTA, the public corporation responsible for transportation in New York State, which was launched after 9/11, and was spread across the US by Homeland Security and since, worldwide. The campaign prompts to report suspicious behavior to the authorities. The installation consisted of three surveillance cameras that were placed on selected sites, which were all commonly used by dock workers and tourists. The cameras were unambigously dummies. In spite of that, they were covered several times. Otherwise, there are no public surveillance cameras in Søby yet.
