Virtual Control - Security and The Urban Imagination is an exhibition by artist and photographer Max Colson that explores surveillance technology and the ownership of public space. Taking place at RIBA, the exhibition focuses on privatized public spaces - urban environments which are nominally public but owned and managed by commercial entities. Images displayed throughout the show explore how carefully camouflaged surveillance technology is used to monitor these areas and perhaps even manipulate behavior.
