Dirty Work’s 'Covert Remote Protest Transmissions’ (CRPTs) breached the 2014 Brisbane G20 ultra high security exclusion zones. Instead of sucking up public images for the purposes of spying on protesters, our CCTVs were spitting out images of protest.
The work consisted of a number of purpose built image projectors installed inside G20 security zones prior to the Restricted Areas taking effect. The police reported they eventually found two of the CRPT units near the summit’s main venue, the Brisbane Convention Centre. The devices were disguised as CCTV cameras and mounted in the heavily policed zones visited by the Summit’s delegates, including Obama, Putin & Cameron. The projected messages were triggered by mobile phone. Statements such as “G20: Corporate Plunder”, “G20: Business as Usual”, and many others were projected onto walls and footpaths.
