Presentation by Fw: Books:

"False Positives is about intelligent surveillance systems. These are cameras that are said to be able to detect deviant behaviour within public space.

False Positives is set around the question of normative behaviour. It aims to raise this question by basing the project on eight different « anomalies ». These so called anomalies are sign in body-language and movement that could indicate criminal intent. It is through these anomalies the algorithms are built and cameras are able to detect deviant behaviour.

The eight different anomalies were pointed out to by several intelligent surveillance experts with whom the artist collaborated for this project."
