Track Tracy during Cultuurnacht 2020

If you were on your way to the train station in Breda on January 25th, you may have been caught in Track Tracy’s spotlights.

From the roof of Breda Central Station, computer ‘Tracy’ hunted for unsuspecting passers-by to catch in her beams of light.

With this project, the creators of Track Tracy (Antwerp duo Daems van Remoortere), look for the contrast between privacy and safety on one hand, and ‘wanting to be seen’ (on social media) on the other. In Breda, the reactions varied from confused, to honoured, to even angry! How would you react if you got caught in the spotlights?
