Constant_V: Footfall Almanac 2020

Please note: the vernissage has been moved to Friday 24/1, 18:00

Footfall Almanac 2020 collects observations, objects and other traces to instigate a discussion on surveillance techniques currently deployed in shopping malls, at Winterpret and other major events in Brussels. Wireless tracking of mobile phones has become a common method to monitor crowds without requiring explicit permission or active cooperation. Private companies as well as civil agencies use it to keep a close eye on the movements of city dwellers through public spaces, the former to forecast sales and the latter for crowd management purposes. Footfall Almanac 2020 observes this encounter of actors and predictions in their shared technologies and terminologies.

This vitrine and publication are part of an ongoing research project developed by Alex Zakkas and Martino Morandi.
