While trying to photograph the 1,000+ CCTV cameras in London’s congestion zone this October, James Bridle found himself under citizen’s arrest. Bridle hopes to complete his project with a Flickr photo album and an animated heat map to raise awareness of surveillance and the role of the state in London. Speaking in-depth about the project, he theorizes the CCTV cameras represent the “third city wall” for London, which will precede successive walls that will track and monitor individuals in the minutest methods without consent.
