This is a combination of installation and performance art which was conceived to provoke curiosity and concern from unsuspecting observers. The ICU1984 was designed to observe people in public locations and how well they noticed new or unusual objects in their environment. The device is nothing more than found objects constructed to mimic an ominous piece of technological hardware complete with an official NSA security logo. The prop also contained a blinking red light to create further curiosity. The prop was placed in various locations and the artist would often be present to incite curiosity and a response. The name of the device is Orwellian in nature.
