Want to raise a kid to be ready for the surveillance society? Get started the right way with a CCTV mobile! This is based off of a drawing by the street artist Banksy and is not for sale. All of the files you need to make are free here.
Now, let's make this thing!
Step 1: Model the CCTV and Centerpiece
I could've just drawn the cameras, they're not that complicated, but instead I decided to just model it in SketchUp once so I could quickly make different angles of it.
The SketchUp file below has two mirrored versions of the CCTV in the same space. Rotate both together to get a new angle and hide one at a time for each image you need of it.
With the resulting images, flip one of the images so that they can be attached back to back.
As for the centerpiece, I recreated that in Illustrator.
Step 2: Print and Cut
Print out the attached PDFs and cut them out with scissors or an X-Acto knife.
Step 3: Glue It!
Take each pair of images and glue together
Step 4: Prep Pieces and Hanger
- Find the center of gravity by balancing it on your fingertip
- Hold the piece the way you want it to hang
- Poke a hole anywhere directly above the center of gravity
- It's science!
Step 5: Hang It!
Attach everything with thread and hang it above a future obedient citizen.
