Open-Loop.org :: A Chicago Surveillance Camera Mapping Project

Posted in Cool Sites, Useful Stuff at 12:40 am by divinity

Chicago has a lot of cameras.  So many it’s kind of scary from an anti-1984 point of view.  Luckily someone has taken it on to log the cameras so you can know exactly when you might be on video.  Open-Loop.org

    Open-Loop.org appears to be defunct…yeah, I know this is coming more than 18 mos after the post above, but still…you’d think such a useful project would have left a trail.

    …unless it was expunged from the net on purpose?

    Hi all,

    Sorry that you all are missing open-loop.org. That project was the wonderful product of a class I taught called the “Art of Surveillance.” The class paid the hosting collectively for 3 years, then I archived the project at Rhizome.org. If you become a member (I think $5) you can look at this project and many other cool ones:
