Meet Rob Spence, filmmaker, journalist and media conference attraction. Having lost an eye as a child, Rob is trying to put a microscopic video camera into his prosthetic eye. Why? According to a Canadian Press article, to raise public awareness of constant surveillance in society and to get people talking unself-consciously.
According to Rob’s bio blurb in a recent DNA conference newsletter, people “soon forget he is recording everything they do” because the camera is invisible. Sure. I wonder how ‘naturally’ people talk in Rob’s presence knowing he could be filming them. Step right up to see the bearded woman of journalism at DNA2009!
