Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 04, 2013
Timed with what would have been author George Orwell's 110th birthday on June 25, Dutch collective Front404 decided that they would give out party hats to various surveillance cameras around the city of Utrecht.The collective said of the project, "George Orwell is best known for his book ‘1984’, in which he describes a dystopian future society where the populace is constantly watched by the surveillance state of Big Brother. By putting these happy party hats on the surveillance cameras we don’t just celebrate Orwell’s birthday."

Hence the sign pieces being called "Mute."
