It's Complicated

front404

For Eric Arthur Blair’s (better known by his pen-name George Orwell) would-be 110th birthday on June 25th, 2013, Dutch duo invited the modern day evidence of Orwell’s dystopian future predictions to celebrate. Written in 1949, Orwell’s famous book ’1984′ portrayed a totalitarian government that monitored all of the population in a Big Brother surveillance state. While the ideas seemed far fetched in 1949, technology is bringing us closer and closer to this reality every year. Thomas voor ‘t Hekke and Bas van Oerle (FRONT404) adorned surveillance cameras throughout the city of Utrecht in the Netherlands in sparkly party hats- to celebrate Orwell’s birthday and make it hard for people to overlook their normally inconspicuous presence.”
