Between public security cameras that track our every move to Big Brother-esque e-mail filtering at work and the omnipresent celebrity paparazzi, it's easy to detect our surveillance-happy society. The Camerahead Project, a public art installation, aims to dramatize this oversaturation of surveillance by adding to it.

These images, captured by George Hickey, depict the 10 Camerahead agents about their daily work. Whether they're following a child at play or a woman sitting demurely at a park bench, these Camerahead agents aren't missing a beat. Even a game of pick-up basketball is cause for the attention of two Camerahead agents.
