Party Like It's 1984

Last week Dutch artists Thomas voor ‘t Hekke and Bas van Oerle celebrated the 110th birthday of writer George Orwell (Eric Blair, 1903-1950) by decorating surveillance cameras in the city of Utrecht with party hats to remind us how “the surveillance state described by Orwell is getting closer and closer to reality.”
