Video: Smashing CCTV cameras

Graffiti // Saturday, April 13, 2013
Set to a sped up remix of “Sunglasses at Night” by Corey Hart, this video shows masked vandal activists dubbed “CAMOVER” smashing and spray painting subway CCTV cameras and more. This is some risky “activism” considering they are filming their destruction with GoPros while the trains are running with passengers. Is this art? Not really. Is it vandalism? Absolutely.

So many good things happening with this new Rime piece. It might be “Blowing up” but it’s a “Blow Out” as well.
