Artist Dries Deeporter turns public surveillance footage into provocative works of arts. His pieces include "Jaywalking"--a live-feed of an intersection where viewers can choose to instantly report instances of jaywalking to the police--or "Tinder In"--which compares the same person's Tinder and LinkedIn profiles and ruminates on our professional and personal lives online.

"I found it pretty strange, that the police were sharing all this data,” Deeporter tells Wired about his piece "Seattle Crime Cams" (found below). “I had to show what you can do with this… You see just how much surveillance there is.”
