Contested Space is a BFA thesis project by Bruce Paul. It is based around the intriguing idea of projecting live CCTV camera footage onto the area which is under surveillance:

The United Kingdom is one of the most surveyed counties in the world and with the advent of low cost, long life projector units the prospects of having such a system used to remind citizens that ‘we are being watched is kind of scary. Scary, yet somehow inevitable at some point in a digital urban environment.
