2.4 GHz

Discover the 2.4 GHz project, a bold exploration of the underbelly of urban surveillance initiated by Benjamin Gaulon in 2008. Through the clever use of wireless video receivers, this initiative sheds light on the pervasive surveillance devices in our cities. Signals, easily interceptable by those equipped with the right technology, reveal the prevalence of hidden cameras, confronting us with the fragility of privacy.

Gaulon traveled through numerous European cities, capturing images from these receivers to compose revealing documentaries. Then, through a public installation of these devices, he made the invisible visible, educating city dwellers about the extent of surveillance they undergo daily.

In this interactive exhibition, you are invited to navigate the networks of wireless surveillance cameras, tracing signals like modern urban explorers.
