This work is about the Boston Marathon Explosion in 2013. At that time, three surveillance videos were public by U.S. Officials, and helped the police finally found and arrested the suspect.
These videos became the important clues to solve the case, the public and official thought it’s fortunate to have the probes, but they have already forgotten the surveillance could be the invasion of their privacy.
Artist puts three probes in the same positions at the scene and captured pictures of pedestrians, people who wearing baseball hat is technically  identified as a suspect.
If ourselves are shown in the videos and identified as a suspect by mistake, weather we still accept with pleasure the sense of security instead of being scared of the invasion of our privacy?
