Toezicht en sociale media in openbare ruimte (presentatie Timan)

  1. 1. Emerging technologies and participatory surveillance in Dutch nightscapes Tjerk Timan social media organisational surveillance new surveillance practices Urban Geography Science and Technology Studies Surveillance Studies Theoretical framework How are surveillance practices in Dutch night- scapes shaped by hybrid collectives of humans and emerging technologies? . research into a particular public space: city centres at night dichotomy between striving to create safe and exciting cities: between fear and fantasy nighttime economies in city centres as walled gardens; monitored and surveilled parts of public space besides CCTV cameras as a form of surveillance, other technologies can be seen metaphors and theories to think about surveillance and CCTV Social media devices and their connected platforms have a strong shaping role on “the public” The mobile phone as a device also occurs in our nightscapes, blurring boundaries of private and public Many of these phones are equipped with cameras, thus also blurring boundaries of watcher and watched Sharing potential surveillance data (consciously or accidental) is called “participatory surveillance” On the side of organisational surveillance, the bodycamera can be witnessed.

Design(ers) of physical and digital media for public space has a forceful shaping role on these spaces and how they are perceived. Therefor, they should be monitored closely !
