ECHELON is brought to the street. EM Listeners move through public spaces, they scan telephone calls, emails and anything else sent over the spectrum. Their highly visible antennae are intended to deter any subversive activities. Their presence is accepted because it means less risk from terrorists.

Part of 'Between Reality and the Impossible'. Commissioned for the 2010 Saint-Étienne International Design Biennial.
