An Artist Copes With House Arrest æ
The Economist reports:
Since [Ai Weiwei's] release last June… he has been the subject of intense surveillance… he knows of at least 15 police surveillance cameras mounted within 100 metres of his home…
Not unreasonably, Mr Ai thought he was being helpful when he resolved to mark the anniversary by mounting four cameras of his own, covering nearly all his own movements, and streaming the live video footage onto the internet at a website he created, called weiweicam.com
What a brilliant response.
