Inspired by the issues of privacy that increase day by day, Spanish urban art studio SpY has recently created an installation called Cameras.

The installation's name itself is pretty self explanatory; SpY has managed to mount 150 fake security cameras all on a single exterior wall of a building in the city of Madrid in Spain. The security cameras don't work, but the art installation is SpY's way of creating a visually stunning statement that is thought provoking yet is a creative way in voicing his opinion on the pressing issue of global surveillance and his concerns on the privacy of individuals in current society.

SpY has been known to creating art as a form of artistic communication in the streets, his artistic commentary on the reality of urbanity can be seen and is enhanced by the facade of this building through the eyes of 150 surveillance cameras.
