On June 25, to celebrate the 110th birthday of 1984 visionary George Orwell, Dutch artist duo Front404 decided to make things really Orwellian: They went around the city of Utrecht hanging birthday hats on all of the cameras! As Front404 explained, not only did it make the city surveillance extra cheery, but it reminded people just how many cameras there were to bedeck… (Hat-tip to BuzzFeed for finding this irreverent birthday celebration.)
