"Unblinking" at the Dot ConneXion expo.

Unblinking is an installation art piece at the Dot ConneXion art exposition, created by Simon Mitchell.[1] It is composed of seven light columns with directed lights that track anyone who passes by, encouraging them to slow down and think about what the piece is communicating.

According to Mitchell, the inspiration for this piece came from a trip to the grocery store.[1] Upon entering the store, the security camera showed him walking in on a monitor perch. Mitchell said of this moment, "I guess that’s their way of saying “Hey, we’re watching you!” or whatever, and I know I’d seen it probably a thousand times, but for some reason it just struck me then, kind of a “Wow, I can’t even buy milk without someone watching me.”"
