Big Brother Goes Green: Surveillance for Sustainable Forests

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

  • Nuno Correia
  • Mónica Mendes

Saturday 12th March, 2011

5:00pm to 6:00pm (CST)

Can repurposed surveillance technology bring people together to protect their forests? Combining physical and virtual worlds, Real-Time Video Interactive Systems for Sustainability (RTiVISS) offer participants a way to remotely monitor natural environments for forest protection.
Collaboratively developed by artists, activists and technologists, these new systems strengthen environmental awareness through "the emotion of real-time". This presentation will showcase the design and technology of specific RTiVISS instances such as "Play with Fire", "B-wind!", and "Hug@ree". It will also be a case study of what happens when tinkerers, open-source coders, and new media artists work together for a better world.
