Screenshot ofTina LaPorte’s VOYEUR_WEB, launched July 2001
VOYEUR_WEB collapses the private and public spheres by connecting the blueprint of an apartment to images from webcams that open a view into the apartment's rooms. During the month of July 2001, VOYEUR_WEB linked to live webcams. The links have been replaced with an archive version of the original work.
